About the Book

America Border Culture Dreamer: The Young Immigrant Experience from A to Z

First- and second-generation immigrants to the US from all around the world collaborate with renowned photographer Wendy Ewald to create a stunning, surprising catalog of their experiences from A to Z.

In a unique collaboration with photographer and educator Wendy Ewald, 18 immigrant teenagers create an alphabet defining their experiences in pictures and words. Wendy helped the teenagers pose for and design the photographs, interviewing them along the way about their own journeys and perspectives.

AMERICA BORDER CULTURE DREAMER presents Wendy and the students' poignant and powerful images and definitions along with their personal stories of change, hardship and hope. Created in a collaboration with Al-Bustan Seeds of Culture, this book casts a new light on the crucial, under-heard voices of teenage immigrants themselves, making a vital contribution to the timely national conversation about immigration in America.
