A book from the shelves of the Coventry University Photography library:
Matt Johnston will be discussing this book, among others, with students in a Photo Book Club meeting next week
Border Film Project, Photos by Migrants and Minutemen on the US – Mexico Border
Rudy Adler, Victoria Criado, Brett Huneycutt

Not only is this a great example of how a photography book can be powerful, emotive, challenging and important, but all without a trained photographers image present. Often we forget that many times, your subject is the best person to tell the story.
“We handed out six hundred disposable cameras to two groups on opposite sides of the U.S – Mexico border – undocumented migrants crossing the desert and American Minutemen volunteers trying to stop them”
