This work is from a series of collages representing the burdens and limitations imposed by the U.S. on immigrants, the least of which is being labeled “animals,” “rapists,” and “enemies.” These works are collages of photos taken along the Arizona-Mexico border in 2018. The “hooded man” in each work represents all immigrants and each work displays devices used by the U.S. to limit border crossings.

In this work, the concertina wire is from the border wall at Nogales.
