Part of the Series The Ache for Home. Kristina and great grandmother Dhan Pyakurel, Saint Paul, MN, 2011. January 2015. The Ache for Home is a meditation on my experience of adapting to a new life and creating a new home. Over the last four years, I have photographed recent immigrants to Minnesota, primarily from Burma, Bhutan and Somalia; who have been displaced from their homeland by war, violence and famine.
