We are all storytellers. The most important story we tell is the story of our own life. We are all immigrants in this life. We may not have crossed the sea ice of the Bering Strait or fled from persecution in another country but we are all born as strangers to this world. Some of our life story we make, some is made for us. The story we tell changes with time, varies depending upon our audience. This book is my visual autobiography. If my images stir emotions, evoke memories, provoke association and make you to reflect on your own life story then I have achieved my goal.
