“Celebrating diversity, racial inclusivity, and practicing loving-kindness (metta)” is one of my crux manifesto in both my personal and professional optics on life. As an openly gay Burmese/Chinese photographer, it’s imperative for me to showcase and emblazon the diverse masculine beauty of the male models I had the honor and privilege of photographing.
I want to express my wholehearted pride in the image of Alta for my DEFIANCE personal photography project. He’s the embodiment, antithesis, and anathema of the Asian male stereotype!
