Seeking safety

Refugees are worldwide problem that shouldn't stop at any nation's borders, so when I received an email by Sara Forrest I was more then interested to have a look at her images. She shot her series "New roots for refugees" only a couple of weeks ago where she concentrated on a group of female refugee farmers and their families (from Somalia, Burundi, Sudan, Burma, etc.) who have been resettled in an urban section of Kansas City, Kansas in the United States. Her purpose of the project was to create awareness for refugees new to the US, to focus on urban agriculture and community based markets and to highlight the beautiful and enduring spirits of these female refugees. Her images are perfectly exquisite still life's and her colors present us with the essence of vulnerability.
