The Future Lies in your Hands - Immigration

The Future Lies in your Hands - Immigration
Photo Description:
This piece explores the global issue of immigration. Immigration is the movement of people into a destination or country to which they are not native to. On the wrist of this hand there is a depiction of people suffering from the hardships of immigration. The faces are somber and are not representative of any particular group/ nationality. Their faces are trapped behind wired fencing which is symbolic of the lack of empowerment of these people. In the hand is a sculpture of the face of the Statue of Liberty as well as flowers surrounding the hand and face. Which are surmounting from the wire fencing.
