PhotoCentral is proud to present a new body of work by Mark Tuschman titled Immigrants are US: Photography and Stories of Courage and Resilience. As with his previous groundbreaking work, Faces of Courage, Mark melds the environmental portrait with emotional impact and seamless craft. The images are documents and personal stories. They convey the humanity of each individual with dignity and express the egalitarian nature of each immigrant’s accomplishments in the face of challenge and adversity. The images are fresh and celebratory.
For the past year Mark Tuschman has interviewed and photographed close to 100 immigrants from the undocumented, to those seeking asylum, to DACA recipients, and finally, to those with full citizenship. His work focuses on communities being discriminated against by our current administration and includes people of all skills, from those doing manual labor to those highly skilled in medicine, law, and hi-tech.
“This project came about from my sense of the dire need to increase understanding of and empathy towards immigrants and to move us, as a country, towards a more humane, compassionate, and integrated society. Knowing that those who succumb to negative narratives about immigrants may have had few opportunities to engage, in proximity, with them, I wanted to bring the breadth, depth, and complexity of immigrant experiences and contributions forward through photographs and stories, giving people access in a way that they may not have otherwise had. After all, one can argue about politics or even disregard facts but one cannot argue a person’s story.” -Mark Tuschman
To experience this moving body of work and hear presentations by Mark Tuschman and immigrants who have participated in this project you are invited to attend a reception in honor of the immigrants who make America great!
