ROOTING

ROOTING by  Cara Louwman en Yuen Yee

Two sisters-in law, Cara Louwman and Yuen Yee Li, a photographer and writer, embarked on a journey to investigate their relationship with their ancestors. They explored what it means to have roots. Through various art forms as photography, Chinese calligraphy and text, they brought their family history into their own lives. As a result a fragile book ROOTING was made that combined Western and Eastern cultural family heritages.
