18 Oct 2017 WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE AMERICAN? THIS PHOTOGRAPHER WENT ON A ROADTRIP TO FIND OUT.
What does it mean to be American? And what does it mean to become American? Those are the questions photographer Myriam Abdelaziz set out to answer in 2016 when she embarked on a solo road trip through the US that would ultimately lead her to create “WE THE PEOPLE,” a conceptual photography book. The Egypt-born French citizen had been living and working in New York City for about 10 years when her immigration lawyer called to tell her she was eligible for US citizenship.
