Tommy Kha in Slate’s BEHOLD photo blog

Unknown No. 4, Memphis, Tenn., 2010

Slidelucker Tommy Kha is today’s featured photographer on Slate’s BEHOLD photo blog.  The article profiles Tommy’s current body of work, “Return to Sender,” affectionately known as “The Kissing Series.”  The series deals with conflicting feelings regarding intimacy, and the othering and subjugation of Asian men in media.

Heavy stuff, but Tommy’s self-portraits are delivered with a dose of levity and rye self-awareness.

BEHOLD has a great spread of Tommy’s photos, but for some more from the series, check out his slideshow from Slideluck Woodstock II! For more of his work, visit his website.

Congrats Tommy!
