Kiyun is a photographer and asked her friends at Fordham University’s Lincoln Center to help her capture microaggressions they’ve faced in their lives.

According to Columbia University professor Derald Sue, a microaggression is a “brief and commonplace daily verbal, behavioral, or environmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative racial slights and insults toward people of color.” The termwas coined by psychiatrist Dr. Chester Pierce in the 70’s.

Check out a few of the photos from buzzfeed:
