In their book "Chinatown Pretty," photographer Andria Lo and writer Valerie Luu celebrate the everyday style and stories of elder Chinatown residents around North America.
The book is inspired by a blog they launched in 2014. While talking to seniors about knit layers, they learned there were many layers to these elders’ lives. Andria and Valerie have profiled Chinatown seniors in cities such as San Francisco, Oakland and Vancouver. They’ve captured the beauty of these elders in styles from dapper sweaters and slacks to bright floral prints and sweatsuits.
