Border Tour photographs from the Mexican/Arizona Border February 2018

Artist  Statement for the New England School of Photography exhibition This American Landscape

With the border wall and immigration daily in the news I traveled to Southern Arizona. I visited border towns, the various fences and walls used to describe the border and went into Mexico to view the border from the Mexican side. The wall has become a metaphor for toughness on crime, illegal immigration and drugs. The wall now stands as a quintessential part of the American landscape.
