PHOTOGRAPHS OF SIKHS AMERICANS FEATURED IN NEW YORK ART EXHIBITION

For more than 130 years, Sikhs have been a part of American culture. British photographers Amit and Naroop set out to explore Sikh traditions through a series of portraits now on display in a downtown New York art gallery. The pair previously pursued a similar project highlighting Sikh Britons.

According to the photographers, many of their Sikh American subjects reported experiencing discrimination or even violence as a part of their daily lives.
