Living in Limbo: Portraits from the Border
In December 2019 I spent several weeks in Tijuana, Mexico making portraits of the asylum seekers and migrants that are currently stranded in one of the world's most dangerous cities. My goal was to stay in the shelters and get to know the migrants as best I could and hopefully, make intimate portraits with dignity.
Because the humanitarian crisis on our southern border continues, I'm continuing to exhibit these photographs through 2022. Please see "Current Exhibitions" for details.
Press for the project:

You can purchase a full-color, 32-page photozine which includes the portraits, background photographs, a brief overview of the project and information on how to support the work of Border Angels. The zine is available for $7.59 (plus tax and shipping) which is the actual cost to produce.
Living in Limbo can now be found at the Social Documentary Network website which publishes Zeke Magazine and hosts important photojournalism projects from around the world.
