This series juxtaposes the torn and dirty USian flag with the naked bodies of all genders, races, sexuality, nationality, and cultural backgrounds. I am interested in critiquing the United States as the dreamland and shelter for people and immigrants. The U.S. was alleged to be the most open and tolerant country but it fails to welcome people from various backgrounds equally.
This series aims to document and capture people's bodies, their vulnerability, emotions, and strength through/with the cut USian flag. Everyone was invited to join the project because most of the people are immigrants in some ways at some point in history in the country even if they're citizens now.
Moreover, I am interested in the body, not some mainstream beauty. I encourage people all to model nude because I am not interested in censoring any specific body parts. Also, if they are part of the body, they deserve to be seen/there.
