Wing Young Huie: 'Chinese-ness'

Recently named the 2018 McKnight Distinguished Artist, Minneapolis photographer Wing Young Huie turns the lens on himself with his latest project, examining what it means to be a Minnesotan of Chinese descent. Part memoir and part documentary, "Chinese-ness" was inspired by a 2010 visit to China, where Huie exchanged clothes with a few Chinese men and used photography to imagine the life he might have lived if his parents never left China.
