Liminal Matter: Fences pairs arresting images of the U.S.–Mexico border by photographer Terri Warpinski with responses to the images by poet Laura Winter. Warpinski’s photographs document the physical manifestations of the zone where the two nations meet, while Winter’s poems remind the viewer of the social and psychological impact of the border on the people whose lives are defined and delimited by that line. A second portfolio, Liminal Matter: Traces, was published as a companion volume in 2018, and is also available from Passages Bookshop.
