Over the decades, America has become home to Latin Americans who have settled in the country. For those that left their nation behind, they have brought new culture – whilst trying to adjust to expectations put on them in the place they now call home. But there’s a new generation coming through. A generation that only knows America as their home, but one that is heavily influenced by Latin American attitudes from their parents.
Karen Arango is a photographer who has documented that generational crossover through her series Miss Behave. The work takes a look at the lives of young girls, ages five to twelve, and aims to understand what life is like growing up as first-generation American girls.
