Tommy Kha’s work is a mapping of Asian Diaspora and possible spaces for queerness. He is interested in photographic imaging of Otherness. In his practice, he often rephotographs cutouts to create pictures that straddle between self-portrait, still life, and landscape. Kha’s work is a continuation of his mother’s photographs from 1984—a year after she fled Vietnam. His mother’s images depict gatherings, celebration, and liberation, whereas Kha’s picture making is performative and collaborative.
