Forced to Emigrate
A harrowing yet inspirational story of Lusha Hood. Originally from Poland, her parents migrated to Australia against her will when she was a child. European parents would frown upon their children integrating with Australian children, which became traumatic for Lusha as she lived under constant pressure to hold onto traditional Polish values. Lusha resides in Sainte-Alvere, France. During the seven days I spent with her, I captured her daily life; documenting her job, her work, and her passion. Our conversations were audio-recorded and are presented in text format. Lusha's story is an insight into the life of being a migrant. I believe her story could help future migrants who have been thrown into a foreign land and neglected.
