Photographer Fiona Aboud’s love of culture and personal expression is reflected in her ongoing personal project documenting Sikhs living all over the U.S.—including Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Virginia, California, Texas and New Mexico, as they carry their traditions into, says Aboud, the fabric of America.
