In September 2015, Zeke Anders embarked on 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 total outsider in their home country. How do international adoptees assimilate within this cultural crack? How do international adoptees define their own self identity?
The KAD Diaries explores these issues and many others though the power of the still image and moving testimonial interviews that will be presented as a photographic + multi-media art exhibition and book.
