"Encounters at the Border"

In a Harvard Magazine, Lydialyle Gibson highlights the work of photographer Morgan Smith, who has spent a decade documenting life along the U.S.-Mexico border. Smith’s work provides a glimpse into the unique experience of life on the border, from migrant families camped out awaiting asylum hearings to Mexican soldiers guarding the border wall. "I think it’s hard for Americans to imagine what it’s like … to come from a very poor area in, say, Honduras, which is one of the most dangerous countries in the world, and travel thousands of miles to Juárez, another dangerous place, where you know nobody, not really being sure what’s going to happen to you," Smith said of the families he photographed. "It’s pretty heroic."
