Crossing Over, and Over
Our inaugural exhibition — BORDERLINE, featuring the evocative photography of Rebecca A. Kandel— highlights the plight of Mexicans from Tijuana who repeatedly brave risks to live in the United States, and it introduces viewers to a myriad of characters whose lives are also affected by the border between Mexico and the United States.
By providing limited editorial commentary and allowing the subjects to speak for themselves in her photos, Rebecca hopes to open a conversation and show just how similar we all are in the hot button immigration debate.
“Each person wants a better life for himself and his family,” she notes, adding, “we just differ in how to achieve it.”
BORDERLINE strives to leave one walking away feeling just slightly more open to another’s perspective.
We hope you cross over to see for yourself on Gallery Night in Providence on November 17, 2011.
