Meet Your Photographer: Jean Luc Dushime

"Through my work, I want to celebrate the resiliency of the human soul and highlight the unbreakable strength of our spirits to bounce back after tragedies.My goal is to educate,challenge assumptions,foster understanding and bring communities together.

The Hope Within the Hands of Hope Project is a celebration of the resiliency, courage and determination of immigrants that move to a new place, often more than once, in hope to start a new life. Their hands are my subjects because they symbolize the hardship they have witnessed and the hope they carry with them.

I, myself, I am an immigrant.”
