TOKUNBO (Toe-Kun-Boh)  Taken from the Yoruba word meaning "from across the sea," Tokunbo looks at how Nigerians in New York City preserve pieces of their culture in the diaspora. Through images of fashion, music, food, and rituals, it considers how this community maintains a sense of home even as it tries to keep up with American culture and live the American dream. Photographed in the great "melting pot" of the United States, it is a local story, but one that touches on themes that affect immigrants from all countries.
