Story


                     10 Years prior to that first time, my parents along with my older brother immigrated to the U.S. This was long after the fall of Saigon. The year is 1995, and in my 8 year old hands, I held the future. A Polaroid OneStep 600 camera. It was a serendipitous and humble first introduction. That day my father and I took pictures of our current lives to send back to Vietnam. This was the first taste of being behind the lens.

                Years later, I still reflect on that experience. My hands held up this blocky camera, with its smooth side in the palm of my hand. As I raise the body to my eye, aligning myself with the viewfinder. I trigger the shutter release giving the camera a voice, and the buzzing of the internal motors pushed out the words. The OneStep camera released a squared format Polaroid allowing the photograph to just simply hang from its mouth. And there it was, the first time I owned a moment.
