  • An-My LÊ arrived in the United Sates in 1975 as a war refugee from Vietnam. LÊ is a prolific photographer whose work blurs presumed boundaries between documentary and portrait photography.

In such, her photographs also challenge the limits of reportage by suggesting that all representation is, on some level, fabricated for the camera and that the underlying narratives that we as viewers presume are never exactly what they seem.
