My grandparents’ house seems to be frozen in time. The country changed politically, economically, and socially. My grandparents passed away, my parents are older, and the next generation inhabits the space that has not changed in over 20 years. Despite the new participants, the scenes that unfold in every room are strikingly familiar and I am a silent observer capturing what appears to be the past in the present for the future.
Lidiya Kan is a photographer, filmmaker, and educator based in New York City. She is the fourth generation of ethnic Koreans born and raised in the former Soviet Union. Her projects are influenced by her multicultural and multinational upbringing. She is interested in overlooked and forgotten histories, everyday stories of ordinary people. Records she creates are evidence of existence, her unique cultural contribution to a larger societal archive.
