In 2019, Emerson & Wajdowicz Studios in New York commissioned me to produce an extensive photography project about the Chinese LGBTQ community, as part of a book series called Diverse Humanity. I traveled to Xiamen portraying young queer couples and singles. Apart from the photographs I took of these subjects and their personal surroundings, I also interviewed them about their life, love and also, their personal fears. Because of the pandemic I haven’t been able to return to Xiamen. This is why I continued the project in the Netherlands, France and Germany photographing young Chinese people from the LGBTQ community here.
The book was published by The New Press in New York.
