afghan americans exhibit

Last Friday, Andrea Bruce's Afghan Americans opened at the International Gallery of Contemporary Art in Anchorage, Alaska. The exhibition runs until Saturday, March 29.

Andrea chose to photograph Afghan-Americans who came from the United States to Afghanistan after 2001 to rebuild their country. They are businessmen and artists, politicians and aid workers. Many are idealistic believers in the democracy the United States promised. Now, faced with governmental corruption and an increase in violence, many are considering returning to the States.
