As I was reading about Snelling, I was really interested in the work she is starting in China and the division of the cultures. It’s great to see she changes locations because the video mentioned it was American scenes, but it seems like more than that. I am curious about why she began this project and how her photography led her to this? Also, was this work influenced by Oakland in any way or her living situation growing up? It seems the structures aren’t necessarily exact replicas of places, but more of generalized imaginations of hers. Has she made exact replicas and if not why not? Also, if she uses her memories or stories to create these places?
