LA FRONTERA Facebook Page
I just started a new Facebook page to promote and organize my longterm project 'LA FRONTERA: Artists along the US - Mexican Border': http://www.facebook.com/LaFronteraArtistsAlongTheUsMexicanBorder
... I am currently working on a long-term project about artists along the US Mexican border in order to document the abundant cultural activities in a region portrayed by the international media mostly with the sole focus on violent crimes. I am planning on traveling along the entire length of the 2000 miles border and photograph painters, photographers, musicians, writers, architects etc… and art institutions and events. I started to work on this project in November 2008 and I have already photographed over 70 artists in Tijuana, Tecate and Mexicali. Next I will travel (in sections) to Nogales, Ciudad Juarez, Nuevos Laredo, Reynosa, Matamoros and smaller towns along the border. I will also visit Brownsville, El Paso, Calexico, San Diego and other border towns and cities on the US side of the border...
