Ash Mayfair (Phuong Anh Nguyen)
The Third Wife

ASH MAYFAIR (PHUONG ANH NGUYEN) was awarded $25,000 in support of the narrative project The Third Wife. In 19th century rural Vietnam, 14 year-old May is given away in an arranged marriage and becomes the third wife to her older husband, a man brought up to believe that power is about control. In this tale of lost love and hidden desire inspired by a true story, we see through the eyes of a girl forced to grow too quickly into a woman.
