Choosing to leave home,

you wandered to the other side of the world,

with the desire to root.

Yet how does one learn to stop drifting?



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.
