A few months ago, I drove down to Tijuana, Mexico and became committed to telling a story about migration - what it means to be a migrant and more so, what it means to be an American. As a female immigrant myself, I found myself capturing more images of young women and children and began this portrait series. I have now documented migrant families on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border, developing a heartbreaking visual understanding of their journey before, during and after crossing into U.S. territory.
