‘Green Card Stories’: Incredible stories of faith, hope and struggle
Green Card Stories tells the heartening, and often dramatic, tales of fifty immigrants who recently attained their American residency or citizenship, accompanied by powerful profiles by journalist Saundra Amrhein and evocative portraits by documentary photographer Ariana Lindquist. Created in collaboration with acclaimed immigration lawyers and scholars Laura Danielson and Stephen Yale-Loehr, the project is in some ways a beautiful celebration of the triumph of hope embedded in the promise of the American Dream, and in others a poignant glimpse of a brutal system of struggle that can, if allowed to, eat away at one’s deepest sense of dignity.
An excellent project and fantastic read.
As the husband of a lovely lady with a U.S. permanent residence card, a Green Card, the tale of my wife’s coming to America, much like those profiled in the book, is a fascinating one.
America’s diversity is incredible and makes me proud to call this country home.
