Photos by Yong Sun Gullach

This photo series is a comment on the demands of the integration of whiteness placed on the transnational adoptee’s individual body. The images investigates the racialization put upon the adoptee, framing a body as it is, thus the requirement of it being framed as the “eternal child”. The photos enhance the alianation of the body in tableaus with references to childish amusement contrasted to national symbolic buildings.

The piece is a work in progress!
