@keratx asked me to do an Insta-TakeOver today to share some of my photographs from the series One Crisis Away/ After the Flood. I made this portrait of Brandy Foster outside her new apartment in Fort Worth, TX. She and her family moved to North Texas after Hurricane Harvey flooded their home in Port Arthur, Tx. Follow @keratx and tune in tonight at 6:20 to hear more from the series One Crisis Away: After the Flood. #aftertheflood #onecrisisaway #allisonvsmith #keratx

I photographed the sweetest family on assignment for The New York Times a few weeks back. Their story ran in the paper last week and as seen today on @nytimes . I was so moved by their story that I donated to @theirc . #neediestcases Repost @nytimes ・・・
@avose photographed Sara Khatoon, 60, kissing her grandson, Mohammad Rahman, who was born in the United States this summer. The 2 live with Sara’s son, Mohamed Rafiq; his wife, Nur Hasina; and the couple’s 3 other children, Ajida Bibi, Sirajul Haq, Eismat Ara. (Swipe left to see @avose’s portraits of the family members.) Together, they live in a 2-bedroom apartment in a Dallas complex home to other refugees. The family settled in Dallas last year after 8 years of separation. In February 2008, Mohamed — a #Rohingya Muslim, one of the most persecuted ethnic groups in the world — fled #Myanmar, aiming to find work in a neighboring country to support his growing family. But the ferryboat he and nearly 100 other Rohingya men were aboard became a deathtrap. The engine died at sea, and the boat was adrift for 4 weeks. Thirst and hunger set in, killing more than a dozen men. “I am ready to die,” Mohamed recalled thinking. Then the Sri Lankan Navy found the boat drifting in the Bay of Bengal. He stayed in Sri Lanka for 4 years before arriving in Dallas in 2013. His mother, wife and children arrived in Dallas 3 years later. “I feel like I am the luckiest man alive,” Mohamed told @nytimes. “I can build my life in the United States. Here it’s easy. I was dying on the boat. Compared to that here, in America, it’s easy.” | @theirc, one of the 8 organizations supported by the @nytimes Neediest Cases Fund, helped Mohamed reunite with his family.
