The Arrival, Shaun Tan

The Arrival by Shaun Tan is a genius graphic novel about displacement. Without any written words, it powerfully tells the endless tale of human flows. The story is set in a “futuristic past” visually rendered by mixing a variety of photographic material ranging from more mainstream iconic historical documentary photography to specific archival documents from the immigration centre in New York.
