Ireland & them - portraits of immigrants during the recession

Ireland & them are story telling portraits of individuals who share one thing in common : they live in a country that isn't their homeland, Ireland, in a very shifting time of the society and economy, 2009-2010.

Following the way media covered the impact of recession on the immigrating populations, I wondered whether we all came and stayed for the same reasons, and how many forms of integration I would find when visiting the people who kindly opened their doors.

To complement the story, I asked them to write a small piece of text about their relationship with Ireland.
