13th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
This photo belongs to a series of self-portraits focusing on the idea of identity and self-discovery, based on my experience of immigrating to Canada at a very young age. By holding nature as a mirror to my displaced soul, I learned to deconstruct every notion that I ever knew about myself before being brought into this new land and let the songs of Northern Cardinals and the winds of dandelion fields paint on the white canvas of my body.
