“Tiger-in-the-Cage“ is an ongoing foto series that seeks to
showcase a more personal and candid look at the Foreign
Posse, along with close friends and families. The series was
started in response to the current Trump political climate that
the country is in, showcasing most foreigners (and people of
color) as being “illegal immigrants”, hyper sexualize, ignorant,
lazy, and or trying to take advantage of the system.
A very stark opposite to the political and more accepting
landscape during the Obama years, but a very strong callback
to the ignorant Bush administration. The Foreign Posse was
birthed by a group that is trying to represent their culture on
their own terms.
The portraits and social documentary of “Tiger-in-the-Cage"
offer an intimate look inside a close group knit of friends that
have become a family that is dealing with being exoticize, but
are just ordinary people trying to achieve their dreams.
