Photography and Immigrants
A reflection on an exhibit on display at Portland Public Library called "Africa to Maine:Photographs of Maine Immigrants' and Refugees' Homelands." The author discusses the importance of photography in his own family, and how the photographs in this show depict an Africa that is not a monolithic entity, but a place of great diversity, of tradition and modernity, of complexity. These family photos, taken by Mainers of African descent, are also, above all, about love of family and community.
