The Uprooted is Yarli’s last piece in Hong Kong before returning to Canada alone.

She contained this 1.5 year self-analyzation period into a 200 pages book, texted with English and Chinese as a documentary. Then she carried along to Toronto as a journal of her Eastern-Western hybridity. Selected photos in the book are shared in this post.
