In 2016, New York-based photographer Zoe Leonard (born 1961) embarked on a project to address contemporary border politics using the river that indicates the international boundary between Mexico and the United States. Along the 1,200-mile journey Leonard encounters various landmarks both manmade and natural. Unmistakable is the presence of detention facilities alongside bridges and levees. Through Leonard's black-and-white images, the river known as Rio Bravo in Mexico and Rio Grande in the United States is revealed not just as a river but as a political tool, a source of water, and a region that many people call home on either side of the border. The first volume displays Leonard's photographs and the second contains written contributions from internationally acclaimed artists, essayists, journalists, poets and scholars. The publication also provides an interdisciplinary reference for people interested in the river, environmental issues, borderlands culture and contemporary border issues.
