Description

Through the use of collaborative ethnography and photography, this poster provides insight into the immigration story of Nikolay Karnev, a Bulgarian student at Illinois Wesleyan University. With the use of collaborative methods and visual media, this research provides insight into the process for a Bulgarian student to obtain a student visa to study in the United States. This poster visually narrates different aspects of Nikolay’s immigration story that Nikolay and I chose for the project. The use of photographs to aid in telling Nikolay’s story is a technique used by visual anthropologists. With the use of Photoshop, we recreated scenes from Nikolay’s journey to America that were key aspects of his story.
