Push Pull


The push of hardship, famine, war and poverty and the beckoning pull of a better life in the wealthy west, is a simplistic perception of the complex phenomenon of migration. This work explores the emotional push and pull of people compelled to migrate and confront new challenges, while deprived of the anchoring of their cultures and origins, and in the process, forge new realities that enrich the lives of both them and their host societies.”
