Description

In recent years, there have been several pressing political issues, one of which being immigration. From Syrian refugees to the migrant caravan seeking asylum, those affected are from all walks of life; yet they are grouped into a single entity rather than individuals with a story to tell. Immigrant, migrant, alien, undocumented, illegal are derogatory and non-derogatory terms used to describe those who come from other places; my work invites the viewer to understand that there is a narrative behind each individual. In a series of posters, I will show the aggressive environment that many immigrants have to endure, the pride of where they came from, and their attitudes in response to hateful comments towards them. Often we aren’t able to know what they go through because they do not speak the same language, they’re scared; or frankly, they are silenced. It is important that we start to listen and recognize the experience of immigrants.
