Portraits of


Portraits of is a slowly-produced audio project collaging slice-of-life audio diaries from Asian Americans and folks with Asian roots. In this project, we attempt to cover a medley of voices and experiences of Asians in America and beyond as they are in their present moments: whole, complex, simple, similar, and different; ranging from their celebrations, vulnerabilities, and mundane moments in their lives.


Stepfanie Aguilar is an audio producer and artist who likes to wander outdoors.

Emma Palm is a musician, audio producer, and visual artist based in southern California.
