Migration, Homes and Borders
In 2021 a group of LaGuardia Community College photography students began projects based on the theme of "Migration, Homes, and Borders." This project is part of the larger LaGuardia Humanitarian Initiative on the same theme. They conducted historical research about New York City at the Laguardia and Wagner archives. Each student designed their own project based on this theme and their research. Meeting weekly, they began to photograph different immigrant communities and neighborhoods. The projects explore cultural identity, ideas of home and nationality, and the impacts of gentrification. Their work will be donated to the archives for preservation.
