Silicon Raj exhibit

Silicon Raj: Making a Difference to America's Future

Silicon Raj is a photo documentary project that represents the photographer's "effort to provide the Indian community with a visual voice, so others will respect their ambitions, culture, music, and other social values, and to document the day to day life of a proud community."  Two of the project's stated goals are, first, to honor Indians' contributions to America in job creation, entrepreneurial leadership, and prosperity in an array of fields and industries, and, second, to call for the acknowledgement of their contributions while embracing their presence and continued integration.
