These images are extracted from an investigation; I wanted to further research open umbrellas in the Chinatown neighborhood of Lower Manhattan. These photographs were taken from 2016-2018 and seek to research why older Asian women use umbrellas on the sunniest days. I photographed the umbrellas in a blind and balletic manner, learning about the pattern of umbrellas as well as the individuals holding them. My conclusions were what I figured - the umbrellas were based on a cultural thing.
