DESCRIPTION & SAMPLE PHOTOS

By carefully looking into these photographs of migrant artifacts, one can more fully understand the plight of desperate people seeking to improve their lives in America. Even though it may cost them their lives trying to get through our desert, they are willing to risk it all to find work that pays much more than wages back home. This is the current reality of global economics. Aside from common trash that gets left behind, one often finds personal items that raise questions about the lives of migrants in general. These artifacts suggest a vibrant humanity whose rich cultural heritages should be welcomed in our land of opportunity. From the humorous Spring Flowers & Pulp Fiction to the tragic A Stretcher Made to Carry a Dying Migrant, More Migrant Artifacts places a sharp focus on brooding mysteries of fates unknown.
