Once a derogatory label derived from the Hawaiian word for half, Hapa is now being embraced as a term of pride by many people of Asian or Pacific Rim mixed-race heritage. Award-winning film producer and artist Kip Fulbeck has created a forum in word and image for Hapas to answer the question they're nearly always asked: What are you?" Fulbeck's frank, head-on portraits are paired with the sitters' own statements of identity. A work of intimacy, beauty, and powerful self-expression,Part Asian, 100% Hapa is the book Fulbeck says he wishes he had growing up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Culturally riveting and genuinely breathtaking! Part Asian author Kip Fulbeck collaborates with fellow Hapa Sean Lennon and others on this artistic and empowering text, "Part Asian, 100 % Hapa" by Chronicle Books. Fulbeck successfully incorporates the art of photography with that of culture when he photographs ordinary people who identify as Hapa (a term used to describe a person with mixed Asian ancestry). I was absolutely stunned by the photographs which are simplistic but beautiful and riveting. Each participant tells a story of triumph, acceptance, and strength. This is a positive and empowering book that resonates with millions of individuals across the country who also identify as being mixed Asian, part Asian, Eurasian, or Hapa. It is obvious that this text goes beyond your ordinary photography book. Fulbeck shows readers the importance of culture and diverse backgrounds by beautifully displaying how different people from assorted walks of life can collectively celebrate their uniqueness and difference!
