  • The Fence - VIDEO
    "Photographer Charles Ommanney drove nearly 2000 miles along the US-Mexico border from Brownsville, TX to San Diego, CA
    where he photographed and filmed the border fence, and gathered testimony from US citizens along the border.
    The result is a unique perspective on the immigration debate through a conceptual exploration
    of the economic, political, environmental, and humanitarian costs of the construction of this fence."
