Amateur photographer Augustus Sherman worked as the chief registry clerk on Ellis Island from 1892 to 1925, during which time he captured hundreds of images of the first migrants to the United States. Today—when more than 120 million Americans can trace their ancestry to Ellis Island—these images serve as a fascinating window into the diversity of individuals and cultures that sought a new life in the land of opportunity. Sherman's photographs, along with other selections from the Ellis Island National Museum of Immigration, will be on display in Carnegie Hall's Zankel Hall lobby throughout the Migrations festival and the end of the 2018–2019 season.
