People of Greenpont II is a project on the border of photography, anthropology, and sociology. It’s a story of two young Poles, who came to the United States after year 2003. The photographer accompanies them during their work, free time. Do they consider themselves immigrants? Do they identify with Polish community? The exhibit gives a visual insight to the changing trends of Polish immigration to the United States. It’s part of the “Greenpoint. The Transition 2016” project, co-financed by the Polish Senate’s patronage of Polish Diaspora and Poles Abroad.
