In the Spaces Between

In the Spaces Between | Fall 2017

There is a space between being an immigrant and being considered
“truly American”.

The American Dream is the dream parents have carried on their backs in search of a better life. But if women carry the weight of the world on their backs, what is to be said of the daughters of immigrants in the United States?

Home spaces tend to be places where women are free to express themselves and their cultures freely. The following photographs are of the daughters of immigrants to the United States, and how they interact with their cultures in a home setting.

Women photographed: Meenu Mathews, Deanna Reyes, Nada Eldaief, Priyanka Walimbe, Rosa Araiza, Emilie Ghaffari, and Sana Ullah.
