Karen Arango’s Portraits Of First Gen American Girls Highlights The Demand For Them To Grow Up Quickly

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.
