Alejandro Lugo Independent ScholarUSAPhoto Essay: Re-Mapping the US-Mexico Border/landsAbstract: The United States-Mexico international border has been unilaterally re-mapped by the US government for almost three decades. A series of US congressional acts have intensified efforts to secure the border, inlcuding by building fences and walls. This photo essay presents images of the border barriers as well as borderland images. The fence or wall images are then intended, on my part, to be juxtaposed with borderland images that capture the social and political relations that manifest the complex ways the borderlands are being remapped through walls and their consequences-all in the context of the still so-called ‘American Dream.’ The goal of the photo essay is to help identify the different ways the remapping of the U.S.-Mexico border itself is being carried out, with or without the “great, beautiful wall” Donald Trump and his supporters are currently imagining and proposing.Keywords: photography, US-Mexico border, imperialism, the everyday, photoessay
