This exhibit encourages a closer examination of the United States-Mexico Border giving particular attention to the individuals and communities that exist along the horizontal boundary. Very often, discussions of the Border focus on the international political relationship between Washington and Mexico City as opposed to the local interactions that occur on a daily basis along the territorial divide. These images demonstrate the lived experiences of communities and lives on the line.
