The Immigrant

In my series 'The Immigrant,' I confront Trump's 2016 promise to ban Muslim immigration. Inspired by his controversial statements, these self-portraits capture the essence of the immigrant experience in the U.S. Adorned in my mother's Yemeni attire, I delve into the profound narrative of the past, echoing the Middle Eastern migration of the 1800s. Beyond political context, these images bridge the past and present, sparking empathy and understanding among communities. This series serves not only as a cultural preservation but also as a powerful educational tool, humanizing the immigrant story for all and fostering a connection to our shared roots.
