Since I was young, I’ve seen many racial issues play out throughout the world. Although I never supported racist ideas, I also didn’t give myself time to think about it deeply enough. It seemed like a story that had no connection with me.

These pictures were taken last December when I went on a trip with my close friends to Bagan. I’ve always wanted to capture different moments in one picture, but it was somehow onerous. But thanks to Gimp, I have successfully juxtaposed my different selves in one place. As you can see, I’m making three different postures and facial expressions in each part.

Gimp was hard to use until I finally found out how everything works. I’m definitely sure I’ll be continuously using this program in the future!
