The World in Fargo-Moorhead shows the immense diversity of foreign-born residents now living in the Red River Valley—one portrait and story at a time. Modeled after Humans of New York, the project features portraits and interviews of immigrants, refugees, students and/or workers on temporary visas who live in the Fargo-Moorhead area.
The World in Fargo-Moorhead officially launched in September 2016 as an exhibit for Welcoming Week at the Main Public Library in downtown Fargo. It was created as a collaborative effort among photo enthusiasts to raise awareness about the range of cultures that define our area.
Each monthly, FargoMonthly.com features five individuals photographed and interviewed by the participants in The World in Fargo-Moorhead. You can find more information about The World in Fargo-Moorhead project at facebook.com/theworldInfm, twitter.com/theworldinfm and instagram.com/theworldinfm.
