During my two years of living in Providence, Rhode Island, I developed a deep bond with the city and its people.

<A Gift > is a social practice that invites strangers of Providence for an exchange with me.

During the exchange of a photograph, we spend some time together -

have a chat, share a story, then I will return the print back to the people.

A gift is a piece of paper, an image

A gift is an opportunity to open new doors

to places I’ve never been to

and people I’ve never known.

A gift is from you to me,

from me to you.

it is an exchange,

a kind gesture,
