2010 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Lorelei will document an oral and photographic history of her Filipino female relatives in the United States—those who immigrated and those who were born here—exploring their experiences assimilating and resisting Western culture, the dichotomy of a traditional or Western life, and the notions of success and beauty. Lorelei will eventually produce a bound collection of essays accompanied by photographs that will also be shared through an exhibit of the photographs and an essay reading.
