Photo Exhibit: "Deported: An American Division"

Previous Next

The fear of being deported looms over millions of immigrant communities under the Trump administration. President Trump tweeted in June that anyone who has entered the U.S. illegally must be subjected to removal without any judicial process. Detroit-based visual journalist, Rachel Woolf, will join us to discuss the narratives of undocumented immigrants and her latest project, Deported: An American Division. It highlights the story of Lourdes Salazar Bautista who was deported to Mexico in 2017 and split from her U.S born children, after living in the country for 20 years. Woolf uses documentary photography, videography and portraiture to show aspects of humanity intersecting with economic and social issues. The opening of the exhibit is tonight at Art Works Projects on 625 N. Kingsbury St. from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
