"The accordion book, French Vanilla, consists of photographs taken during my trips in France in 2011 and 2012. It documents how I perceived the new surroundings, France, when I encountered a new and different culture with idealized expectations. The visual narrative along with French Vanilla color explores how the over-expectation affects one's perception, and how the expectation vanishes as one gets used to the new surrounding."
