If you appreciate photographs, you’ll love this great book published by McSweeney’s. It does a great job of capturing everything we do in client voices from their own perspective. Powerful. Here’s how the book jacket describes it:
Refugee Hotel is a groundbreaking collection of photography and oral histories by Gabriele Stabile and Juliet Linderman that documents the experiences of refugees in the United States. Evocative images are coupled with moving testimonies from men and women who have resettled in the United States from Burundi, Iraq, Burma, Somalia, Bhutan, and Ethiopia. In their narratives, they describe their first days in the US, the lives they’ve left behind, and the communities they have since created. Woven together, these remarkable stories and images are a testament to the complexity and magnitude of the refugee experience.
