Have you ever wondered where the term “Anglo-Saxon” came from? This book will tell you. The author provides a comprehensive overview of the Germanic tribes who invaded and settled in... More > England following the end of Roman-occupied Britain and assimilated into that nation. This work starts in the sixth century with the first Saxon invasions, and follows the succession of further migrations from central and northern Germany which created the culture and language today known as the “English” people. This book does not delve into the pre-Germanic origins of Britain—shown by present-day DNA analysis to be the majority of the English people. It does however provide a highly instructive example of how a culture changes as a result of demographic shift: a lesson which the present-day English people, facing a new invasion of unassimilable immigrants, would do well to learn.

This project is an ongoing documentation of female and gender non-conforming immigrants through portraits and interviews. So far I have shot individuals living in New York City who have immigrated... More > from the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Ecuador, the ​Philippines​, Cuba, Moldova, Zimbabwe, Mexico, Venezuela and Bangladesh. Some of these people I know personally and some I met when I shot them. I photographed everyone in their personal space to create a sense of intimacy. Each photograph is shot on a medium format camera on black and white film. I shot in low light to invoke a mood of contemplation and reflection. The text from the interviews is in its original unedited format in order to maintain authenticity. I chose to take photographs of female and gender non-conforming immigrants, because the majority of us hide under the radar out of fear or as a way to assimilate.< Less
