Border Crosser

Image by Pete Railand.

Migration Now! was a 2012 print portfolio co-produced by Justseeds and CultureStrike (CultureStrike is now the Center for Cultural Power) which explored the social, cultural, and emotional facets of immigration.

Railand’s piece was inspired by the realization that globally, capital and goods easily cross borders while humans are deemed illegal when doing so. Railand was living in New Mexico at the time this piece was made. “The landscape is straight from New Mexico,” Railand said, “and El Paso/Juarez has such a train bridge…”

This page is currently a placeholder while we to track down the original high-res files of the images from this portfolio (06/2020)
