My name is Bie. I’m a photographer/ graphic designer and I’ve been living within the palm tree cityscape of Los Angeles for over a decade now.
I was born in Midwest America to refugee/ immigrant parents who came to the US after the Vietnam War.
You’re probably wondering what “NPIB” stands for. It’s my name spelt in Hmong- which is my ethnicity. Npib is pronounced “bee”, meaning coin or penny.
When I’m not taking photos or designing- I write. In the past it’s been hard finding my own voice as a second generation American and I have found blogging to be a very therapeutic process.
My stories and photos are about the culture I was born into, what the current society presents to me, and how both aspects intertwined into one.
I seek and document the quality of life as time passes by, the people who came into this world with me, others that I have and yet to meet.
Thanks for discovering me.
