Eric Blau, MD and Lee Huai

This piece, which is part of a larger body of work, explores how our cultures both influence and alienate us.

Artists Eric Blau, MD, of the Southern California Permanente Medical Group, and Lee Huai have been friends since Ms Huai arrived in the US from China. The two often talked about collaborating on a project. Their collaboration has resulted in the remarkable Alone/Together: Meditations on Alienation series, more of which can be viewed at www.ericblauphotography.com.
