“This project is about the very idea of America. Relatively speaking, newly created nation with tumultuous and perhaps not so just beginnings, but with an ideal to be a beacon of hope for the world.
A nation made up of people from everywhere, coming to her shores, some escaping famine, war, oppression and some simply looking for better opportunities.
Participants in the project come from all walks of life, some are themselves immigrants and some are descendants of earlier generations of immigrants.
Participants are asked to write something of their ancestral background or any type of related statement on a small white tablet, which they show while being photographed.”
