Substructure: Basic framework or foundation that supports a superstructure and is supported by an infrastructure.

Substructure is a portrait series that documents 50 Chinese migrants from 5-80 years of age. Each anonymous portrait is captured with both still and moving camera where a static and highly detailed photo contrasts a raw video capturing kinesthetic gestures. With migration being a precursor to a developing country, Substructure explores internal migration and the challenges and successes that are experienced in search for a better life.
