Photo and entry from the ArtCade Forum blog about Japanese photographer Satomi Shirai (shown left), a Hunter College MFA student.
“Her earlier photography stemmed from adjusting to a new American lifestyle while trying to keep alive her Japanese habits. This connect and disconnect between two cultures have led her into a current series where she documents the lives of young bi-racial women. For example, the woman in her above photograph is both Korean and Irish. The woman is shown in her NYC apartment which has been influenced by both of her ethnic heritages.”
