My name is Thao. I was born and raised in Saigon, Vietnam. My parents were an adventurous pair, so they often took the family on spontaneous trips around the country. My father is a kind man with a tough exterior. My mother is an incredibly strong woman with a soft look on her face.
At 18, I flew half the world away to attend college in Oregon. Shortly after graduation, I moved to New York with $30 in my bank account and a few boxes of books. They all might sound like a random collective of impulsive decisions; but these places, things, and people have greatly influenced and shaped my identity.
Photography is my escape from the dull moments of a young adult's life. It's a medium that let me visualize my thoughts and document my growth. Currently, I live in Queens, New York with two cats (Bert and Bernadette) and another human whom I love very much.
