Eugene photographer and digital artist Melissa Nolledo exhibits her photographic essays titled Our Stories: Immigrants of America for the first time at the 2017 Oregon Asian Celebration. Her stunning pictures are accompanied by life stories of what it’s like to be an immigrant in America and Oregon. “My goal is that through these photographic essays, we may build bridges of hope, strength and courage to inspire the people around us to see that despite our differences, we are connected and similar in so many other ways: our dreams, aspirations, our love for country and humankind.”
