Artist Statement

Despite suffering from long journey, loneliness, homesick and culture shock, thousands of international students from almost all countries over the world come to Indiana University, because of its excellent academic programs and welcoming community. The photographer is originally from China and pursuing the Master of Fine Arts degree here. Starting from his wnn experience, he concerns about the academic and daily life of the international students in their common new home here at IU. Through his residency at the Office of International Services, the photographer had the chance to interview students from several countries and revealed their personality and cultural identity by the environmental portraits.
