Continental Divide: Borderlands Wildlife, People and the Wall

Death by Jeff Foott

 

Continental Divide is an exhibit of 30 large canvas photo prints that depict the land, wildlife and people of the borderlands of the United States and Mexico, and the impact that a border wall is having on them. The images in the exhibit were taken primarily during a three and a half week expedition with the International League of Conservation Photographers along the 2000-mile border between the United States and Mexico. The expedition included 13 photographers who documented a diverse range of borderlands flora, fauna and cultures.

Much of the American public is unaware of the devastation being caused by harmful U.S border and trade policies.  The most symbolic and destructive infrastructure resulting from these bad policies is the newly-constructed US – Mexico border wall. Over 600 miles of border walls and barriers have been built from the Pacific Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico, fragmenting endangered species habitat, causing erosion and flooding, and tearing apart fragile ecosystems found within Wilderness Areas and Wildlife Refuges; National Monuments and National Forests; and other protected lands, both public and private.

The exhibit debuted at the US House of Representatives in April, 2009 and has been traveling the country since.
