The KAD Diaries from L.A., D.C., and Chicago. Candids by Jeanne Modderman, David Valera, Dustin Ryan Yu + Luisa Ospina, Nadja Bonacina, Matthew Booth, and Mary Westcott.

September 2015, marked a photographic journey to document the cultural and self identities of Korean adoptees across America. Many feel caught between two cultures not fully being accepted in the U.S., while being a foreigner in their homeland.

The KAD Diaries explores these issues and many more though the power of the static image that will be presented as a photographic art exhibition.
