7 windows tell the stories newcomer women. Each window provides a glimpse into a different woman’s journey and life in Canada. Many immigrated from countries such as Iraq, Syria and Jordan.

These photos were created through a series of cultural exchange workshops held by Progressive Intercultural Community Services Society (PICS). Participants explored questions of cultural diversity and learned camera skills from a professional photographer. The end assignment was to create auto-ethnographic photography series—a method of telling one’s story through photos
