Ka-Man Tse


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

Photographer Ka-Man Tse creates images which speak to the feelings of longing and belonging, place and placelessness, centering around her experience of negotiating multiple identities simultaneously, as a member of Asian, Asian-American and LGBTQ communities. Tse's photographs look at the complexities surrounding the desire marginalized people feel to be seen, and the dangers which come with visibility, too. In Untitled, a hand stretches out over a calm body of water, tethered to something out of view by a thin, white strand. The delicate strand and the wide expanse of water below articulate the precariousness of connection and visibility.

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.
