Nicola Okin Frioli Shows Us the Other Side of the American Dream

Nicola Okin Frioli's latest series, 'The Other Side of the American Dream,' reveals the horrifying abuse, discrimination and corruption of those trying to cross the American border.

Men, women, children and elderly people from Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala and Nicaragua put themselves through extreme measures in a desperate attempt to secure a better future for themselves and, more importantly, their families. The series is not merely a comment on the agony and victimization of these people, but a critique on the concept of the American Dream itself, and the way it is packaged as something attainable to everyone.

With this series, Frioli hopes to "reveal the physical scars, the pain and the humiliation of those who at one point allowed themselves to dream of something better."
