Kenyan-American Dream

Posted by
Rags (Plano, United States) on 21 April 2008 in People & Portrait.

For this next project, I decided to tackle the theme of "Kenyan Students following the American Dream."
Inspired by photographer Dorothea Lange, the photographs I took had to be simple and yet full of meaning.
The issues that I bring up in these photographs are not just specific to Kenyan students. They are issues that most immigrants and international students in colleges across America face as they strive to chase what is in essence only a dream.

Agufwa came to America with the dream of
playing professional soccer.
He graduated a couple years ago from college
and still his dream hasn’t been realized.
