These photographs explore the issue of migration, the violence and injustice surrounding it, and potential solutions. It was taken in the spring of 2013 while I was on the Borderlands program based in Tucson, Arizona. This photograph was taken at a border protest in Nogales that rallied against the death of Jose Antonio, a 16-year-old Mexican boy who was killed by a Border Patrol agent a year ago. This agent shot at him from the US side in reaction to rocks that the boy was throwing at the fence. This was an international protest: the photograph of the fence was taken of the US side and the photograph below was taken of the Mexican side. We passed candles and words through the slits in the fence in solidarity against border violence.
