Our Portraits, Our Families

The Asian Pride Project presents Our Portraits, Our Families, a groundbreaking group photography exhibition that visualizes and promotes “the realization of love and understanding in our families, as a way to undo culturally ingrained bias.”

Each featured artist worked with an Asian Pacific Islander LGBTQ individual and their family. Collectively, the visual narratives address a shared context of immigrant values while shedding light on a topic oftentimes silenced within these communities.


Among the exhibition’s contributors are former Magnum Foundation Fellow Pete Pin, telling the story of Akara Seung, and former Emergency Fund Grantee Justin Maxon, portraying the story of Lesley Kim.

The exhibition is on display through July 13 at the Museum of Chinese in America. Read about the exhibit in the Wall Street Journal.
