Friendship Beyond Cultural Bounds

At a time when cultural appropriation is a controversial issue among minorities in America, this portrait of three friends cuts through the din. Posing at the annual Asian Festival at Columbus, Ohio, a younger woman arrives wearing traditional Asian attire, flanked by her companions and cultural guides. It is a heartening group portrait, one that demonstrates the power of friendship to bridge cultural divides.
