"I found it easiest to be at once the taker and the taken. Eventually, the self-portraits grew to be increasingly varied, where I take on multiple sets of identities that challenge viewers to decipher for themselves "Who am I?" I attempt to lead on the viewer and have control over him/her for the time of at least one image." - Tam Tran
