It's already spawned a couple of interesting conversations with my wife and four-year-old daughter. Even though she's only four, she's already encountered the stupidity of strangers and well-meaning-ignoramus-friends as they question whether or not I'm really her father (I'm hapa and she has her mom's lily-white complexion and blue eyes/blonde hair).
Though multiracial individuals comprise at least 7 percent of the U.S. population, according to the 2000 Census, people who are mixed or "hapa" nevertheless tend to be ignored in society's ongoing conversation about race and race relations. Kip Fulbeck thoughtfully puts a stop to this wallflower phenomenon by placing the faces of mixed-race people front and center in this intriguing and artistic new book.
The old proverb is true: a picture does tell a thousand words. Here, each face relays an unflinching, often fascinating tale about its owner. The result is a candid glimpse into a growing population, and also, a generous and quite touching photographic exploration of the feelings, observations, and struggles that make each of us -- in the end -- universally connected.
it is hard to sufficiently explain how great and filled with 'hapa pride' this book made me feel, so you will just have to buy it.
