Photographer Kip Fulbeck revisits his popular Hapa Project with hapa.me, an exploration of multiracial Asian American heritage. The original exhibition broke new ground 15 years ago in exploring identity through portraits of multiracial subjects paired with handwritten responses to the typically posed question, “What are you?” In the new exhibition, participants’ updated portraits and statements sit side-by-side with the older ones, showing not only their physical changes over the years, but also their changes in perspective and outlook on the world.
hapa.me will be on view at the Japanese American Museum of Oregon from May 21-August 13. You can read more about the exhibition here.

He has authored five books including Part Asian, 100% Hapa and Mixed: Portraits of Multiracial Kids, and has exhibited his artwork in over 20 countries. Fulbeck has been featured on CNN, MTV, Voice of America, The New York Times, The Today Show, and various NPR shows.
