The Forgotten Dream[1] Photographer: Flora Borsi (Hungary)
Description Hungarian photographer Flora Borsi would like to draw attention to the Immigrants who wanted to live a better life in America. She tried to connect past and present with visualising these people in today’s environment.

“Last year I’ve been to Ellis Island and I immediately had a bad feeling about that place. Approximately I knew what happened in Ellis Island and later I’ve been thinking about the likeness of current immigration reforms in the United States.” said Flora Borsi, “I made a research and it’s really sad what happened to many Immigrants. Many of them died in Ellis Island while waiting and hoping for an opportunity for a new life.”

In this way their dream came true. Flora Borsi created this project as a reminder and commemorate to the 3,500 people who died there. Black and white images from the previous century are often forgotten, so she colorised them and retouched the damages to make more connected to the present. The images are fictional, many people couldn’t ever get into Manhattan or live in America.

Migration is an ongoing situation and the story of Ellis Island is still relevant nowadays. This is not history. This is today.

*Archive images were made at Ellis Island / New York of real Immigrants around the 1900’s.
