The Magnificent Migrants
Foreign Policy magazine has a photo essay by Dulce Pinzón concerning immigrants the the dual lives they live. The subject of her photo essay was sparked after seeing a Spider-Man costume in a store.
I saw a Spiderman costume in a store in November 2001, and that’s when everything came together in my head. Comic-book superheroes have an alter ego, and so do immigrants in the United States. They may be insignificant or even invisible to much of society, but they are heroes in their homelands.
Many of these subjects not only contribute to society here in the United States through their hard work, but they also support their families back in their native country by sending remittances home.
It’s a great connection of the duality of super heroes and the lives many Americans experience today. Check it out today.
