I met Jaydee Dizon, a Los Angeles artist, during a documentary photography class I attended through Venice Arts. Until then, Jaydee considered herself a landscape photographer, but early in the class she produced some highly compelling autobiographical photos, including Rice Face, a self portrait that ultimately launched her powerful 20-woman identity series.
