First Generation Americans are native born citizens of the United States with one or both parents being foreign born.
As the face of America consistently changes and the ideology surrounding immigration constantly shifts, let's take a look at the faces of First Generation Americans.
Below are Millennial First Generation Americans, born from early 1980s to early 2000s. These are the faces of the future of America and they are all born of immigrants.
As a First Generation American the clash of your parents' culture and the city and ideology of present day America is a constant struggle. In a more creative experiment, I projected each participant's respective flag over them as well as a statement they hand wrote. Representing being fully consumed by the culture of their parents, it effects their voices, their morals, how they see the world and how they choose to live out their daily decisions. Participants also brought items that they felt represented their connection to their parents' home country, as well as their own home country of the United States.
