Eyakum Guillat’s performative photographs explore his connection to his homeland, Ethiopia, using traditional dress, props, and location. Being raised in the United States, Gulilat tries to reimagine his adult life back in his homeland. Alan Chin’s photographs also revisit his ancestral homeland, documenting his families’ rural village in China. Angie Keller travels to El Carmen, a Province of Chincha in Peru and photographs the Afro-Peruvian women in the town, documenting the obstacles many women in this community face – whereas Hye-Ryoung Min’s examines the life of a 7-year-old girl, while forcing the viewer to look differently at the types of people we see but know little about. Joana Toro studies the status of Latin immigrants in the United States through an eyehole in the head of a Hello Kitty costume in Time Square.
