Living Water River

The Tijuana river flows between the U.S. and Mexico. In Tijuana, the river’s  proximity to the border makes it both a shelter for migrants, deportees, and houseless and a habitat for myriad birds, plants and animals. Ana Andrade visited this area, also known as the “bordo” for more than 4 years and, over time, photographed the river’s dramatic transformation and the increasingly endangered livelihoods of both the people and the non-human life forms living in it. Andrade’s photographs frame this world as a post-apocalyptic dystopia. As many live organisms in the planet are being threatened, Andrade’s images force us to return to the essential questions. How do we live in a world, together, and without destroying it and destroying us?
