QUEENS USA: A Global Celebration

Audrey Gottlieb has been documenting the borough of Queens, NY, where she lived and worked for 30 years. Queens continues riding the crest of America's waves of immigration. Gottlieb's photographs reflect the lives and celebrations of many new and established immigrant groups living and working in architecturally drab neighborhoods. Her images depict rituals and traditions that the newcomers carry over from the old country and blend into the new one. Families that escaped war-torn places now live in Queens, in harmony, next door to ancestral enemies. Reflecting on their lives, she believes, has given her a better understanding of the journey and assimilation process of her own grandparents.
