Photographs show the beauty of the mixing of races in families

Connection World

After all, globalization has not only brought us changes in the economic sector, it has also changed culture, races, and people. Photographer Cyjo, who hails from South Korea and grew up in the United States, portrayed some families who carry that rich and beautiful ethnic mix with them.

The project, titled “Mixed Blood,” sought out families with widely divergent ancestry who can no longer declare themselves citizens of a single country, but of the world. In the images you can see that ethnicity and genetic inheritance not only say a lot about an individual, but also about their entire family. The photos were taken in New York and Beijing, China between 2010 and 2013. In addition to parents and children, the images also present a glimpse of the world of each of these families, making evident how this mixture of cultures works very well in the environment in which they live.

The 2000 U.S. census was the first to allow people to check more than one option when asked about race. It was not so surprising that almost 7 million people (out of more than 300 million inhabitants) chose to mark more than one, recognizing themselves as multiracial people.
