Yan Lu

MA work


I am focusing on the difference of protest activities in eastern and western countries. It focuses on documenting a Chinese character protesting in a western country. I am confronting the Chinese political stance from a western perspective, and exploring my cultural identity as a Chinese person living in a western environment.
