story about the La Frontera book



My book about artists along the US-Mexican border will be published in Frankfurt, Germany, on May 6th by Edition Faust, 232 pages.
For this project I documented the cultural activities in what used to be some of the world’s most dangerous cities along the US-Mexican border.
I photographed 180 artists and art supporters along the entire 2000 miles long divide to show the vibrant cultural side of a region that is usually portrayed by the international media with the sole focus on violent crime.
The book has 180 photographs, the texts are in German and Spanish. The introduction was written by New York based journalist Claudia Steinberg

With Texts by Claudia Bodin, Orfa Alarcon, Dolores Dorantes, Rogelio Guedea, Yuri Herrera and David Toscana.
On the cover: photographer and activist Raechel Running at the border in Agua Prieta, Mexico.
