This is a ground-breaking look at one of the most complex and emotion-charged issues facing America today: immigration. This book is not a polemic. Instead, with stark black and white photographs and first-person stories, this is an illuminating look at some 110 new immigrants to our shores, men and women come from all over the world, and we see what they do, every day, to enrich the life, the culture, and the economy of America. The title says it all: "Together We Rise." This book was born in anguish. Four years ago, the celebrated photographer Mark Tuschman became incensed by the anti-immigrant rhetoric and policies then coming out of Washington, and he swung into action, heart engaged and camera in hand. Mark's resulting photos and personal stories take us from farm and vineyard workers in the Napa Valley, to high-tech creators in Silicon Valley, to gifted entrepreneurs in Boston and Chicago, and to doctors, nurses and researchers all across America. The result is a unique and illuminating portrait of America at its very best.

Mark Tuschman is a very patient man. To understand the plight of millions of women around the world, Mark spent ten years going from country to country, village to village, taking photos and documenting the stories of women and girls facing danger and humiliation almost every day of their lives. The result was "Faces of Courage, Intimate Portraits of Women on The Edge," a book endorsed by Jimmy Carter and women's groups all around the world. Named by American Photo as one of the top photo books of 2015, "Faces of Courage" helped raise our consciousness about women's issues, and his new book is destined to do the same for immigration in America. As Mark explains, all the immigrants he met affirmed their belief in freedom and in the enduring power of the American Dream. As Mark explains: "Some of the people I met came here as undocumented immigrants. Some came seeking asylum. Some came as DACA recipients, and still others came traditionally, in search of new lives and full citizenship. And without exception, each person I met expressed the desire to contribute to our society, and they came because they deeply admire our democratic values and ideals. Their stories moved me, every single one."Mark currently resides in Menlo Park, CA.
