Ka-Man Tse


Archival pigment print
30 x 38 inches
Edition of 8, signed sticker on verso

Many of Ka-Man Tse’s photographs use her experience as a queer, Asian American woman, and take place in Hong Kong - a difficult city to move about freely as a queer person or a person of color. In Untitled Tse creates an intricate composition out of the shapes, lines, and forms of the city's infrastructure. The photograph speaks to the liminal existence of marginalized people: it is taken from the outside, yet features open windows, and a stairway which offers entry into the safety of the domestic space inside. Carefully blending these openings into the image, Tse uses the backdrop of the city to prompt questions of who and what has the right to be seen - and how?

Ka-Man Tse has exhibited her work at Para Site, Videotage, Lumenvisum, WMA’s Transition, and Eaton Workshop all in Hong Kong. In the U.S. she has mounted solo shows at Aperture in New York, the Silver Eye Center for Photography in Pittsburgh, PA, and the New York Public Library. In the fall of 2020, she exhibited work at Art on the Stoop: Sunset Screenings at the Brooklyn Museum. She is currently Associate Director of BFA Photography at Parsons.
