Corky Lee and the Work of Seeing
For N+1 magazine, I wrote an essay in which I look at radical photographer Corky Lee's archive as a way to talk about the last 50 years of Asian American movements, political economy, class and gender.

In addition to being an appreciation of Lee's omniscient archive of decades of Asian American history, the essay is also an examination of how the specific politics of his moment, a radical movement against war in the Pacific rim and exploitation of proletarian labor, transformed into the Asian American politics of our moment. There's also an overview of many of the incidents of "anti-Asian Hate" and a subtle critique of the Stop Anti-Asian Hate movement.
