Migrant Camera is a nomadic camera obscura tent inspired by worker shelters aesthetics built by Union and undocumented workers, with the idea to foster conversations in Public Spaces between the workers, stakeholders and general public about life and work, in addition to symbolically addressing the existing social order for immigrants by turning the world upside down.

The fact of being inside a camera will invite for a social interaction in an era of “selfies”, a different take on the photographic moment only tied to observation, in this case observation with participation. An intimate space for dialogue, learning and collective representations for anyone who wants to participate.

Sol Aramendi’s Project Luz program has worked to empower new immigrants in New York for nearly ten years both with photographic skills and She strongly believe that Art is a tool that enables dialogues and a further understanding of social justice. She is particularly interested in Social Space and Social Cooperation between community groups/labor groups and artists.
