GenetopiaIn 2017 - the year that consumer DNA testing took off - I began interviewing, photographing, and working with 23 individuals to curate the story of their experience with DNA testing. Since the project began, the story of genetics has had a tumultuous journey. Genetic testing has been used to store GIFs, identify remains, solve crimes, reunite families, break families apart. An attempt was made in Kuwait to create a nationwide DNA database. The scientific papers flow thick and fast with debate and disproof. But underneath the headlines is a very human story, the story of people who wanted to explore health, ancestry, themselves, and how that knowledge affected their experience of their own identity. This is the story that Genetopia tells.
