Finding Home: Portraits and Memories of Immigrants
by Becky Field (Portsmouth, N.H.: Peter E. Randall Publisher, 2020).

Concord, NH photographer Becky Field has published a second book of photography focusing on immigrants and refugees living in the state of New Hampshire and their stories.

"FINDING HOME celebrates people from other countries who have resettled in New Hampshire.

Since 2012, photographer Becky Field has documented the lives of immigrants and refugees. Now, in addition to her portraits, she transcribed their memories of life in the home country and the journey to find a new home. The 40 interviews represent a mix of age, gender, communities, and countries of origin.

The immigrants’ stories document the resilience and determination of people to find safety, education, work, and freedom, while Becky’s photographs show the beauty and vitality of cultural diversity that contributes to all our communities."-- Author's website
