- La Frontera - New Portraits
- I recently photographed over 50 artists and art lovers along the south side of the US-Mexican border in Baja California. With my long term project 'LA FRONTERA: Artists along the US-Mexican Border' I want to document the very creative life in a region that is portrayed by the international media mostly with stories about violence, drug trafficing and illegal immigration. The 3 cities I have visited so far, Tijuana, Tecate and Mexicali, are amazingly interesting places with world class food, art and music. And a big border fence. And the nicest people on earth. Really. My plan is to travel to every town and city along the entire border - on both sides - as soon as I have found sufficient funding for the project.
