I really needed to find an angle, because in the art world a good angle is an order of magnitude more important than actual talent. Plenty of people are talented. Not myself, of course--I'm lucky if I can get everyone smiling in the shot (BTW: anyone with good "cheese" techniques, please email me!). I'm not concerned, however, because I'm more interested in name recognition. The more stunts I pull, the more people will recognize who I am. The broader my renown, the greater the demand for my work, the larger the interest in my shows, and the fatter my wallet gets.
Thus is success born.
As an Asian adoptee daughter, I find it repelling. I can’t imagine having a photo with my adoptive father in this way. What does it say about power and patriarchy? About feminization/fetishization? Contrast the Daddy and I series with Horizon, also featuring Chinese children.

I am not one of the fathers pictured, but if I were, I would be disturbed to be in that group, even if my own picture were completely wholesome.
