These images are part of a series that explores my mother’s experiences as a migrant who left the stability of her family and friends in Hong Kong to the isolated suburbs of the Sunshine Coast in the 1970s, for the sake of love. A fundamental Chinese value is the importance of the family unit as individual identities are defined in terms of their roles and interpersonal relationships within the family, rather than by their own sense of self or who they are. After my parents’ divorce, my mother was confronted with the task of renegotiating her identity through this transition.
