In Embrace, Los Angeles based photographer Rohina Hoffman reflects on the theme of uncertainty while combining two of her photographic projects. In Gratitude, made during the pandemic, is a typology of portraits celebrating food and family and how we find comfort in times of unease. Generation 1.75 is a visual memoir of identity, belonging and the complexities of acculturation. Hoffman uses text to accompany her photographs, incorporating poetry and prose. Short poems in the book set a deliberate but delicate cadence. An essay bridging both projects is translated into Hindi as well.
