Last preparations at a wedding party. The sister of the groom adjusts his neck tie. In a moment of what should have been happiness, the bride holds back tears. The marriage means she has to abandon
her relatives. Her husband is an immigrant in Italy and she will have to follow him there. Many Albanian expatriates ask from their relatives back home to find them local brides. In that case, marriage means immigration. Tirana, Albania. December 2012.
