From the article by Carrie Wise on artist Pipo Nguyen-duy for Ideastream Public Media/NPR and picked up by PBS:
Growing up in Vietnam 50 years ago, the fear of gunfire was part of [Pipo Nguyen-duy’s] daily life. In 1975, he relocated to the U.S. as a political refugee, not knowing English and not really knowing his mother. They had lived in different cities while he was growing up, until he went to live with her in Monterey, California.
Nguyen-duy has spent his career exploring cultural uncertainties in his photography. While his projects vary, he continually considers: Where is home?
