Shooting immigrants to America from all 195 countries

AMERICANOH project is a photographic study of the perspective, identity, and re-identity of American newcomers through culture. A crucial and binding aesthetic point is the idea of “the element in the room”. Incorporating four elements of our world: Earth, Fire, Air, and Water, these portraits seek to explore the manifestation and cross-pollination of race and nationality within a new American ethos.
