The Netherlands is a country with different cultures, but does everyone feel at home? I have experienced a number of things in my life that made me feel unwanted and uncomfortable, and I never knew how to express that feeling to other people.
With just a few words, you can change a person's life without even being aware of it. I don’t want to just show the negative side of the story, but also the positive side. There are many positive aspects to growing up with two different cultures. To answer my original question, I tried to translate the thoughts of others into a photographic series according to my own interpretation.
Having been born in the Netherlands of Cantonese descent, I struggled with finding a safe space where I could feel at ease with the clash of my identities. With this photo I invite you into my bubble – a place I’ve created where I can be myself and feel at home.
