It was amazing to see the Iu Mien settling here in the bay area in 1980. I have been photographing this community since they arrived as refugees from Laos. It's great to see their progress as they assimilate and grow in the American society.
I would like to personally thank the many Iu Mien and their families whom I have known for over 25 years for making me a part of their community. Photographing the Iu Mien community is an ongoing personal project. I will be adding more images as time goes on.
