"Common Borders: Casa Blanca, Riverside, and La Frontera"
2002-03-23 until 2002-05-02
California Museum of Photography
Riverside, CA, USA

Yolande Andrade, Eniac Martinez, and Todd Bigelow create portraits of the layered communities and cultures that make up the region known as la frontera or the border. These images refuse the representation of the U.S./Mexico border as a set of overwhelming statistics or conomic dilemma/opportunity instead showing how daily lifeis transformed by the individuals who live in this dynamic region.

Yolande Andrande capturs a portrait of Riversife's predominantly Hispanic Casa Blanca neighborhood focusing on residents continuing traditon of celebrating the Virgin of Guadalupe, the patron saint of Mexico.

Eniac Martinez documents a group of Mexican Indians who migrated to the United States from their home state of Oaxaca in search of work. Mixtecos provide much of the labor force used to build the fastest growing housing market in the U.S.

Todd Bigelow began photographing the U.S./Mexico border out of personal intrest. In the last ten years he has developed deep relationships with people on both sides of the border.
