Mixed Blood is a photographic and textual project portraying NYC and Beijing based families that include children with “mixed” races, ethnicities, and cultures. Mixed Blood questions and diffuses the historical categorization process of race/ethnicity and focuses on connective, cross-cultural experiences. The portraits and accompanying narratives illustrate the varying relationships family members have with their backgrounds, cultural context and citizenship. This unifying of race and cultures within a family unit continues to influence the evolution of American and global identity today.
Mixed Blood can be found in select University libraries including the Harvard Library, MIT Library, Pratt Library, University of Michigan Fine Arts Library, Three Shadows Photography Centre Library, Texas A&M University Library and the Library of Congress.
