RETURN TO SENDER | TOMMY KHA | 2013


 
Tommy Kha about his project: “Return to Sender surveys acts of myself receiving a kiss from strangers, friends, and lovers, and not returning it. While my passive character mirrors stereotypes of the Asian men—usually almost always depicted as neutered, asexual, or submissive within media, it is my transgression as the photographer that undermines this passivity. Coupled with the other participants control over their own representation through their kiss, these images intend to question and confuse the role of the photographer and sitter, protagonist and supporting character, self-portrait and performance.”
