The idea was conceived after Lim, a senior graphic design/advertising major from Malaysia, sat in a meeting where someone said all of ACU’s multicultural student organizations were “basically the same.”
She set out to show how each culture – and each individual – is unique.
“I was taking a photography class and happened to be experimenting with portrait photography. I decided the best way to really put this in everyone’s line of sight was visually,” she said.
Lim and fellow photographer Jesse Anyaegbu, a junior interior design major from Nigeria, captured the stories of more than two dozen students for the Office of Multicultural Affairs Facebook page. Each story highlights a student sharing a “broken view” or misconception, represented in the photos by broken glass, alongside a story of who they really are.
“This project serves to provide a reminder that we are all unique, even beyond our culture, labels and status,” Lim said.
