PICTURE IN PICTURE: FILIPINO WOMEN ACROSS DECADES

This self-portrait series features Filipino-Canadian women who have come to Canada during different periods of immigration from the 1960s to the present. The images are accompanied by an audio component where the women share their experiences in terms of expectations, aspirations, realizations, roles and responsibilities, before and after arriving to Canada. In each self-portrait, the woman holds a photograph – a personally selected image – of herself prior to or subsequently after her arrival to Canada.
