The We Wish We All Have a Wonderful Life series (2010-2013) explores affect, whiteness and snapshot photography through images of my own family. By allowing my complex feelings guide my camera, the photographs materialized my entangled vulnerability with my subjects. The photographs stand in contrast to typical white family snapshots that intend to hide actual feelings behind ritualized and repetitive conventions. They also draw inspiration from the frequent mistakes found in snapshot photographs — mistakes that often hint at the uncomfortable histories hidden beneath the appearance of conventional family values.
