Dorcas Tang 邓佳颖 is a third-generation Chinese-Malaysian artist and photographer who currently calls Sydney, Australia home. Her first documentary photo project, Los Paisanos del Puerto, offers an intimate glimpse of the historical Chinese community in Puntarenas, Costa Rica. Through her work, she seeks to question ideas of belonging, constructions of memory, and investigate intersections of cultural and gender identity. She explores these themes through the transnational Chinese diaspora spanning from Central America to Southeast Asia. 

Ultimately, I aim to make a mark in history that has deemed my community forgettable.
