From Lauren Iida's 100 ASPECTS OF THE MOON series, inspired by Japanese woodblock artist, Yoshitoshi's 1890s series by the same name. Each new piece captures a moment from the artist's experience, sometimes inspired by her home in Cambodia, sometimes drawing on her Japanese American family's archive of vintage photographs. All 100 images in this series contain the moon in some way, symbolizing the common thread of humanity through time, distance, and culture.
