The Marshallese Diaspora represents my first, serious attempt at documenting a community outside of my own as well a marked step towards looking at issues in the United States. Despite the USA being both my place of residence and birthplace, my work for over a decade had focused exclusively on my relationship to the Philippines culminating with this piece in The New York Times.

In 2020, I reflected on my previous work as part of an online panel discussion for Ateneo Art Gallery's 60th anniversary celebration and its corresponding photography exhibition, Not Visual Noise, which can be viewed here.
