The Great Canadian Family Portrait Project by Brian Limoyo and Reception House

$30.00

The Great Canadian Family Portrait Project is a collaboration between photographer Brian Limoyo and Reception House, an organization whose programs and services help government-assisted refugees build new lives in Waterloo Region. 

This limited-edition book pairs Limoyo's portraits of refugees—photographed with pictures of the family members they had to leave behind—with interviews that offer insight into these new Canadians' experiences and the complex emotions that resettlement entails.

100% of proceeds from the book support Reception House's social integration programs, such as the Family Partnership Program. For more information, visit receptionhouse.ca.
