A project about the great Chinese-American physicist Chien-Shiung Wu. While the educational poster presents a rough overview on her life, this series of images examine the challenges Wu had to face as an immigrant woman.

During the creation process it was a challenge for me to find a serious, appropriate tone for Wu‘s difficulties in America. At the same time, the tone needed to honour her achievements and present them with dignity.
