I was recently contacted by Danielle Ricci www.danielliericci.net to see if I was interested to participate in multi discipline collaborative show. The show would be with her and the Borealis Dance www.borealisdance.org a professional modern dance company, local Hmong artist and myself. The show is hoping to further the dialog about the refugee crisis in the world which this collaboration will specifically deal with the Hmong community and how they came to call Minnesota home. Danielle reached out after she came across my work I did in late 2004 documenting the final weeks of the largest remaining Hmong refugee camp in Thailand, Wat Tham Krabok refugee center that was located about 81 miles north of Bangkok.
Upon reading her request I immediately responded back noting my interest and excitement to help any way I could, I choose 7 of my images and printed them 16x20 for the show to be displayed and then be donated to the Hmong Cultrual Center.
The show will take place at the North Hennepin Community College in Brooklyn Park, in Minneapolis Minn. March 12-17.
