Ni Aquí Ni Allá: Elements of a Border - Samanta Helou Hernandez

Ni Aquí Ni Allá: Elements of a Border - Samanta Helou Hernandez

45.00

This photo was taken on 35 mm film from Playas de Tijuana looking into San Diego through the border. This structure, which really is just metal, represents so much in terms of pain, loss, identity, and creation. Much has been said about this place through philosophical, cultural, and socio-political analysis, but here I wanted to show the physical and tangible elements of this border in the hopes of conveying the absurdity of imaginary lines of separation that have very real effects.
