"America is one of the most diverse countries in the world. So many ethnicities, religious beliefs, customs, languages make up our communities, and at some point that first individual who stepped onto our shores, were initially strangers to the native Americans who were already here.
So I chose a diversity of ages, ethnicities, gender and through color as well graphic techniques, tried to show this melting pot." - Karl Tani
