Blue Lotus Gallery hosts an intimate book talk and signing session with Xyza Cruz Bacani whose recent book project WE ARE LIKE AIR published by WE Press not only marks the next step in her personal journey as a photographer but even more importantly confronts the harsh reality of economic migration through her own personal life experience.
The core of the book is about her mother Georgia; who as a Filipino domestic worker, was trafficked and mistreated in Singapore before she ran away and found a safe haven with Ms. Louey; a generous and kind employer in Hong Kong who she served for the past 20 years. This is a story about love. It visually portrays the parallel lives lived by her mother in Hong Kong and father in the Philippines and how their relationship dealt with a life time of separation.
Book talk and signing on Saturday 26th January, 4-6pm
