TCF Ep. 563 - Andria Lo & Valerie Luu
Chinatown Pretty was created by photographer Andria Lo and writer Valerie Luu, two friends who love dim sum and chasing after pretty poh pohs (grandmas).
 They started a blog after their personal project was featured as a story, Chinatown Sartorialist, on The Bold Italic. For the story they pitched, they shot portraits and interviewed seniors in San Francisco Chinatown whose outfits reminded the pair of their grandmothers. The experience brought them so much joy and inspiration that they wanted to continue capturing their unique style and stories.   Websites Chinatown Pretty   Andria Lo   Valerie Luu   Michael Jang   17.21 Women   Chinatown Pretty on Instagram     Sponsors Charcoal Book Club Lensrentals.com   Education Resources: Using Your Life to Launch Your Photography Momenta Photographic Workshops   Candid Frame Resources Download the free Candid Frame app for your favorite smart device.
