This photographic autobiography discusses emotions of cultural displacement. The figure, draped in a silk saree, intends to represent and exaggerate the feeling of being visibly and culturally different. This concept is exemplified in the image of the figure sitting on a bench in a baseball field. In another image the figure stands by a car the same color as the saree, referencing an attempt of assimilation. Throughout the publication, every other spread is paired with a definition. The words defined are assimilation, foreign, and alone.
