BEYOND MIGRANT

Beyond Migrant is a portrait project highlighting the stories of 15 families who have gotten caught in the limbo of US immigration policies and been sent to Mexico after trying to seek asylum. The series was created using a makeshift photo studio in the small border town of Mexicali, Mexico, in May 2021 as the southwest border of the US is expected in 2021 to see the highest numbers of asylum-seekers and immigrants it has in 20 years.  Each portrait was shot against a uniform black backdrop in order to invite viewers to engage with the stories beyond their momentary circumstances.
