The Unlikelihood of Family: A Photographic Essay on Transnational Experiences
Navarro, Cristina Llerena
Harvard Educational Review, v85 n3 p342-356 Fall 2015
In this photo essay, Cristina Llerena Navarro captures moments in the everyday lives of mixed-status families. Through her narrative and images, Llerena shares the stories of these families, their journeys to the United States as well as the consequences of deportation on the family unity. She evokes the children's deep yearning to be reunited with their families on American soil, the parents' determination to provide their children with lives better than their own, and the realities of current immigration policy in preventing the fulfillment of these dreams.
