Photos from I’m Here and I’m Not (to be published 2021)
I’m Here and I’m Not is an essay collection which traverses various themes, ranging from reflections surrounding Islamic theology, practice, and maintenance of faith in a foreign country, to issues of colonization, American global influence, racial relations in Cambodia, serendipity and divine intervention, and commentaries on art and photography. The photos I made and curated for the collection encompass the idea of being in multiple places at once – a feeling of simultaneous disconnection and presence that lives in juxtaposition.
