Having left Hong Kong at the tender age of six, I suffered a crisis in cultural and personal identity. Was I a Hong Konger, American Citizen, or an ABC (American Born Chinese) as everyone liked to put it? In which community did I belong? As I grew older, the list of descriptors and possible groups grew longer too. 

At the age of 24, I took the time to return to Hong Kong and to put my ideas about the changing definitions of identity and experiences living as a third-culture kid in photos and in words.
