Third Culture

Atong Atem is a Melbourne-based, South Sudanese artist and writer with a vibrant and wonderful photo series “Third Culture Kids” which investigates the space between one’s cultural heritage with that of an adopted home.

“I feel not South Sudanese enough, or not Australian enough.” In a recent interview, Atem explains, “Being a Third Culture Kid means recognising there’s a space that exists between the culture we’re from and the culture we’re living in. I feel not South Sudanese enough, or not Australian enough. I have to accept that I’ll never be both: those ideas are completely fabricated from outside of myself.”
