For one week this January, six Oberlin College students ventured to New York City, cameras at the ready, to interview and photograph Asian Americans and Asians living in the United States. Over the course of winter term, the group transformed the stories and images they collected into a photography exhibition, Finding Asia in America.
Inspired by the online photography project Humans of New York, the group posts a photo from the trip to its social media site every day. The students hope their project will offer new insights into the lives of Asian Americans and Asians living in the states, and let those with similar stories know they are not alone.
