I address the controversial topic of immigration by connecting images that encourage the viewer to formulate ideas about immigration. I attempt making these connections by indicating parallels between similar forms of travel; that of migrating birds and that of migrating immigrants. My intent is to explore metaphorical analogies of the social and political act of migration, thus forming a critical deconstruction of these ideas.
