First of all, don’t limit or over-evaluate yourself based on your background as an Asian. Because what people actually see is not you but your photos.
I also want to say that your story and voice matter.
Growing up in Korea, I loved visiting photo exhibitions.
The highly reputed ones that I remember were usually from the western world, including Henri Cartier-Bresson and Life Magazine photos.
The photos seemed like the “right” answers.
If other Asian photographers grew up admiring photos of a world far away from themselves, like I did, I want to advise that you can find such valuable stories in your own community.
You can photograph your family and your neighborhood.
If your passion lies in another place far away from you, sure, go for it.
Don’t limit yourself based on your background.
What I want to say is that you don’t have to go somewhere special to create great visual work.
At the same time, I’d like to emphasize looking at a wide range of photos, not just the ones created in Asia. I think it’s always beneficial to broaden the view by looking at a variety of photos.
