Freedom, 2016

Etre libre comme un oiseau

Libre de voler dans la nature et aller n’importe où

C’est mon rêve…

To be free like a bird

To be free to fly in nature and go everywhere

This is my dream…

In the online exhibit Picturing a New Life in Chicago, people who were forced to flee their home countries because of war, persecution or violence share photos and inspiring stories about adjusting to a new life here. Some of the photographers came to Chicago through a refugee resettlement program. Others sought political asylum. Learn more in Online Exhibit: Forced Migration Photovoice Project.
