Artist Interview | Loupe Magazine


Photographer, July Sumalde’s series In a Foreign Land sensitively explores the lives of Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW’s), whilst simultaneously investigating her own national identity. As a child of two OFW’s, she hoped the project would strengthen her connection to her absent mother, and develop an understanding of the sacrifices these individuals make to financially support their families back in the Philippines. July’s casual yet beautifully intimate portraits document the women in their homes away from home, showcasing their efforts to bring an essence of their national identity into these foreign spaces.
