Postkard from Amerika: POLITICS AND RACE STYMIE IMMIGRATION REFORM

Immigration is a hot-button issue in the United States, and moves to initiate reforms to streamline and regularise the process are proving to be extremely contentious. Depending on who you ask, there are around 11 to 13 million illegal (or undocumented) people in the US, and they are here because there are jobs to be found and more money than what can be made back home. These workers toil in the jobs that Americans do not want – in agriculture, construction and sanitation.

This blog post is a journey through time and space. The look back at the last six weeks feels like a desperate attempt to hold a handful of sand. The specks fall through the fingers as lost pieces of puzzle, portraying the images I encountered on this journey. Chaotic gallery of faces, odors and feelings rushing into each other to create a thin cobweb, held together by a fragile sense of consistency.

Democratic National Convention and Brazil

Democratic National Convention and Brazil

It was a tiring three-day journey, but it was worthy. As I have been working with international issues for ten years, I've always wanted to cover the United States elections, and I am now in USA doing exactly that.
