‘This Is Us’
‘This Is Us’ explores the identity of those like myself, the “third culture kids”. Growing up in a culture different to that of our parents we have found ourselves in an identity crisis. Like myself the individuals in the photographs found themselves balancing cultural expectations, with stereotypes from both societies, one from their roots and the other being from the society they live in, both forcing us to challenge stereotypes and create a social change, to stand up and embrace who we are, a strong and influential generation of empowered individuals from the South Asian community, through these images they will share their story, each different to the other yet they all stand for the same notion.
