View 110 photographs taken by five American scholars and photographers who traveled in the Arabian peninsula nation of Yemen and in the industrial and agricultural regions of the U.S. where thousands of Yemenis have come in search of work. These pictures are supplemented by a number of often-poignant home snapshots taken by the workers and their families.
