Growing roots from shared dreams  

Rocio Graham

Offering an intimate glimpse into the nuanced identities of Mexican migrant workers that work in the farms of interior BC, Rocio Graham shares her own experience of uprooting herself and re-negotiating her identity while building a connection to the Canadian landscape. Developing a friendship with her compatriots becomes an attempt to collectively recreate their sense of community and place. This exploration of the Mexican diaspora is a reclaiming of sorts; seeking a way to rewrite stories of migration using a new visual language – one that emerges from shared roots and shared dreams.
