Residues of Border Control



NEW BORDER PUBLICATION
Residues of Border Control in Southern Spaces
Susan Harbage Page and Inés Valdez

Striped Clothing, Brownsville, Texas, 2008

Overview:
Since 2007, Susan Harbage Page has photographed objects left at the U.S.-Mexico border, both on site in the Rio Grande Valley, and in her studio. In this photo essay, Inés Valdez comments on the significance of Harbage Page’s images of the traces left by immigrants and by those who control the border. Valdez’s discussion also challenges the historical representation of the U.S. as a welcoming “nation of immigrants.”
