I just started this blog as I am so tired of seeing all the commercial & cliche images so prominent on tumblr. There will photos from photography's "Greats" as well as reblogged images I find intriguing. Feel free to submit images as well!

From her As I Am Interview:
Asian bodies, particularly the bodies of Asian women, are almost always depicted as being for the visual and sexual consumption of others… I’m tired of dealing with those types of ideas that people have, and in some way, photography is my way of processing through all that.

From her Le Sigh Interview on what inspires her:
Conversations with other artists (or other people in general) - Talking to other people is a really big inspiration/influence. From conversations I’m having with people, sometimes they’ll ask me a question or they’ll say something I’d just sincerely never thought of, which prompts me to sometimes try my hand at other things. For example, my friend Elle Perez recently asked me why I’m so interested in photobooths, and nobody had ever asked me that before. After that, I thought about it more and decided I wanted to be a little more focused and intentional with photobooth work.

i really love this/her

A few years ago, Russian photographer Jana Romanova’s social life took a turn. All of a sudden, it seemed, all of her friends had become pregnant. She started her series, “Waiting,” by photographing her friends sleeping early in the morning in their bedrooms—a time, as she wrote on her website, “when people don’t really care about their appearance and one can see their attitude to each other and to this life that is growing inside their family.”
