The goal of the “VEN of the month“ photo series project is to create a running catalogue of the internationals living in the Vejle area. Each portrait includes each individual’s personal story in her/his own words. Collectively, we represent a culturally diverse group. Therefore, these portraits symbolize that despite the cultural differences among us, the path to cultural adjustment is similar for us all. These stories share both our challenges, but also the many positive aspects we experience while living in Denmark, and especially in the Vejle area. Every month a story is shared here.
