Pho­tog­ra­pher cap­tures im­ages of im­mi­grants from all na­tions

Kuwait Times - - INTERNATIONAL -

BOS­TON: A pho­tog­ra­pher has made it his mis­sion to pho­to­graph two peo­ple from ev­ery na­tion who have set­tled in Mas­sachusetts. Mark Chester is well on his way to achiev­ing his goal.

Since 2011, he’s pho­tographed peo­ple from 185 of the world’s 196 coun­tries, all of them im­mi­grants who live in the state and have be­come nat­u­ral­ized US ci­ti­zens.

Chester’s col­lec­tion of more than 350 pho­to­graphs has been ex­hib­ited around Mas­sachusetts. He is now in the process of putting them into a book he plans to dis­trib­ute free to schools and li­braries around the state. He said his project has taken on new mean­ing since Repub­li­can Pres­i­den­t­elect Don­ald Trump has said he would build a wall along the US-Mex­ico border and tem­po­rar­ily ban Mus­lims from en­ter­ing the coun­try.
