MOVING FORWARD, LOOKING BACK
YEMENIS IN NYC Documents the lives of Yemeni-Americans living in New York City during a period of immigration and transition.
As thousands of Yemenis flee violence and hardship in Yemen, new ways of life must be formed. The transition can be seen most clearly through the new generation of Yemeni-Americans. What is kept of the past, and what is shed in order to embrace the future? Through still imagery, audio, and video, this project explores the growing pains of being young and feeling different in a new place.
This is an ongoing project.
