The Newest Americans

Art Show, Museum, Photography

"The Newest Americans" offers a unique look at the U.S. and the immigration process through the eyes of 28 new citizens. Presented as part of Photography Month Sacramento, the exhibit features portraits by Sam Comen and interviews by Michael Estrin capturing the moments surrounding two naturalization ceremonies in 2017. As immigrants from over 20 countries of origin share why they came to this country and what the American Dream means to them, visitors are invited to join them in taking pride in the diversity, freedom and opportunity that continue to make America a beacon of hope around the world.
