Refugees from Burma is the photographic documentation of the Burmese Refugee community resettled in Utah. The series of photographs portraits refugees in their living room, inside the home they have built after being persecuted in Burma (actual Myanmar) because of their religious belief, then transferred to Thailand into a refugee camp and finally resettled in the United States. Showcases how political issues in their homeland country have obligated them to run away and find a new place where they can feel safe again. Despite the years these people have been away from their birth-roots we still see a consistency in the maintenance of their values and traditions.
Research Purpose: Documentation of the environment created by a foreign who flee their home-country and the visual maintenance of their culture.
