"BorderLands" is Susan Harbage Page's testimony and a commemoration of the courage, fear, hope and determination that drive countless people to risk everything in search of a better life. For more than a decade, she has traveled to the U.S.-Mexico border near Brownsville, Texas, to record the journeys of immigrants entering the United States. By collecting images with her camera and gathering objects at the scene, she has created what she calls an "Anti-Archive" that documents this still-unfolding event: "We usually celebrate our histories through the objects saved and owned by the privileged. The Anti-Archive resists [this] tradition by saving and archiving objects left behind by anonymous immigrants coming into the U.S. from Mexico." Free.
