Lien Pham is a photography and graphic design student from Vietnam, currently pursuing her BFA at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, USA. In her photographic practice, she aims to be critical, and to simultaneously invite critiques, of her apprehension of reality. Through a range of approaches, ranging from street, portrait and self portrait photography, to collecting found photographs, she has elaborated on her privileges, struggle in relationships, the estrangement she feels as an international student, and her depression.
