"I created the series because of the negative way immigrants are portrayed in the media. The work is based on portraits of people who came to the USA at the turn of the century. The goal is to spark the conversation about diversity, acceptance, understanding, and to see that immigration brings fresh ideas and unique challenges that will enrich our society. I believe that educating future and past generations to accept our differences and fight for equality help use connect with each other. "
