About the Book:
John Moore has focused on the issue of undocumented immigration to the United States for over a decade. His access to immigrants during their journey and to U.S. federal agents tasked with deterring them sets his pictures apart. Moore has photographed the entire length of the U.S. southern border, and traveled extensively throughout Central America and Mexico, as well as to many immigrant communities in the United States. Mentioned in the New York Times and Wall Street Journal, his work includes rare imagery of ICE raids and mass deportations and the resulting widespread fear in the immigrant community.
