Facing America attempts to fill the gap between what we know and what we see
of refugees in the media. I photographed 19 refugees from Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Sudan,
Congo and Eritrea who have been resettled in New Haven, Connecticut, by Integrated Refugee &
Immigrant Services (IRIS), an affiliate of Episcopal Migration Ministries and the Immigration and
Refugee Program of Church World Service. The series was commissioned and presented by The
Forum @ St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church (Brooklyn Heights) in February–March 2016.
