Since 2012, photographer Becky Field has been photographing the lives of immigrants and refugees in New Hampshire. Her project shows that while we have different cultural roots, we have the same dreams for good jobs, bright futures and freedom to practice our traditions. She has published two books of her photographs and immigrants’ stories, “Different Roots, Common Dreams: New Hampshire’s Cultural Diversity” (2015) and “Finding Home: Portraits and Memories of Immigrants” (2020); her books have won several awards. In 2017 Becky started a scholarship fund through the NH Charitable Foundation to help refugees complete an undergraduate degree. She gives talks and exhibits about cultural diversity and immigration policies. All net proceeds from her work go to nonprofits working with new Americans. She has a Certificate in Photography from the NH Institute of Art and studied at photography centers throughout the Northeast. In past work Becky was a university professor and wildlife ecologist and holds a doctoral degree in wildlife ecology. She lives in Concord, NH.
