The New Americans and Glasshouse Installation with Jill Enfield

“The New Americans” is a physical display of heritage, genealogy, and homeland. I was brought up by immigrants and wanted to create a project that honored immigrants’ integral role in our society while simultaneously representing the hardships they still experience to this day.

The process used with this project references the same technique used to record immigrants who traveled in the 1800’s. By fusing the elements of old and new, I created portraits that reflect both historic technique and the reality of contemporary existence, which unfortunately parallels that of some of the first immigrants. My goal was to communicate concepts of heritage and immigrant hardship into tangible form by utilizing the original process in which immigrants were photographically documented.

Niagara Falls: Photo Icon of the Americas with Dr. Anthony Bannon

Niagara Falls is probably the most photographed site in history.   It was Canada’ first photograph, made in 1841 by the British explorer H.L. Pattinson.  The image of Niagara became synonymous for the majesty and dangers of the New World. Yet soon enough, the Falls were made crude - only to be rescued in one of the few victories culture can claim over industry. Niagara stood for environmental rescue - and for freedom. The NAACP had its roots at Niagara. And through the centuries, The Falls have been characterized through every photo-media and movement – from Daguerreians to highly collected contemporary artists.  Dr. Bannon will expose the Falls’ glories and follies.
