New Americans 2014-2020


This body of work documents the physical appearance of these new Americans but also it examines what our innate reactions are, as humans, to encountering these individuals. The children that appear in these photographs are all biracial. They are photographed at a tender age, between two and ten, at a time where they themselves have not begun the process of codifying, identifying themselves more with one race than another. The photographs are printed on fabric, then embroidered by hand.
