In this slideshow and artists talk based on the self-published photography book of the same name, Soone takes us through New York City, the San Francisco Bay Area, Vancouver, and Paris in the 1970s and 1980s, with particular emphasis on the Chinese immigrant community and African Americans to reveal alternate interpretations of seemingly innocuous symbols. At their core, these pictures reflect the compassion and social consciousness of an artist transformed by the tumult of the 1970s.
