A Day Without Immigrants

A Day Without Immigrants was a protest and boycott that took place in different cities in the United States on February 16, 2017. The strike called for immigrants not to go to work, to avoid spending money, and keep children home from school to demonstrate the importance of immigration, and to protest President Donald Trump's ban on nationals of seven muslim majority countries, in addition to his plans to build a border wall and to potentially deport millions of illegal immigrants. 

This is a personal project I did for and on Day Without Immigrants. In this publication famous immigrant figures go missing from their iconic pictures. This project is currently exhibited and available at Printed Matter, the prominent independent art and design bookstore in New York.
