House of Franco

Franco, an immigrant from Yemen working at a local deli, ignited the House of Franco Project delving into the transformative power of mindset in defining new spaces. Through intimate conversations and meticulous documentation, I explore the intricate interplay between cherished hometown memories, the immigrant experience, and personal identity. By capturing Franco's daily routines and meaningful interactions, I evoke the profound challenges of adapting to a foreign land. This artwork serves as a poignant testament to the universal longing for belonging, transcending barriers and nurturing empathy. It invites introspection on displacement, the relentless quest for home, and the resilience of communities. Franco's experiences serve as a gateway into the realms of personal and cultural identity, igniting profound dialogue and fostering a more compassionate society.
