Photography exhibit from Upwardly Global's 2011 Passport to Possibilities Awards & Gala. These images share stories of the many skilled, work-authorized refugees, immigrants and asylees that Upwardly Global moves from poverty into the professional workforce each year.
The exhibit explores the concept of “brain waste” in the United States, highlighting the importance of global talent by artistically juxtaposing skilled new Americans’ professional careers with the under- or unemployment they often experience in the United States. Ultimately, the photographs are honest and moving portrayals of the journeys made to America from across the world, relating stories of courage, resilience and success.
