I have always been fascinated with every aspect of Ellis Island. Its history and its lore. The notion that you could leave everything that you had ever known, your home, your family, and your friends for a promise is intriguing. Ellis will be an endless source of inspiration for me. You can create your own culture, and history in art and in a way that is what you always do when you create art............... travel through the waters to reach an unknown shore. These pictures have their own secret, personal promises to tell, and so does Roma.
