Finding Home 
is a celebration of people from other countries who have resettled in New Hampshire, a state known for low cultural diversity. Photographer Becky Field has been documenting cultural diversity in the state since 2012. Now, in addition to their portraits, she met with 40 immigrants to record and transcribe their memories of life in the home country and their journeys to find a new home in the Granite State. Some came to escape violence; some came for love; some came for education. Some are teenagers with a lot of life ahead of them; some are elders with long memories of their journeys. The stories show the resilience and determination of people to find a safe home, good education for their children, work to support their families, and freedom to practice their faith. The photographic portraits show the beauty and vitality of cultural diversity that contributes to all our communities.

PRAISE OF "FINDING HOME" FROM MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW:
Critique: A pleasure to simply browse through one page at a time, "Finding Home: Portraits and Memories of Immigrants" is a unique and extraordinary contribution to our current and on-going national dialogue over immigration. Beautifully illustrated throughout with full color photography, "Finding Home" is a coffee-table style volume (10.1 x 0.6 x 11.4 inches) that will prove to be a welcome and appreciated addition to personal, community, college, and university library Contemporary American Photography collections and would well serve as a template for similar immigration oriented projects.
