About this Project


An archival photographic project that uncovers my mother's early work experience as a new migrant to NYC to recognize the contributions of immigrant women of color in the American workplace.

This work is still in progress as I weave together stories about the technology work performed by these women and the social mobility it afforded them and their families.

What you see here is a selection of the images in this project, please contact me to inquire about viewing more.
