ID Photo Posters is a series of photographic self-portraits of the artist, Soyoun, who is Korean-Australian, wearing face masks.
The masks symbolise the need to protect Asian communities in Australia from discrimination and violence during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The project aims to provoke the conversation about cultural perceptions based on a person's ethnic background.
