Liminal Matter: Traces pairs arresting images of the U.S.–Mexico border by photographer Terri Warpinski with responses to the images by poet Laura Winter. Traces focuses the viewer’s attention on the people caught in between two nations and those who profit from their plight. Visual and poetic pairings reveal artifacts and other evidence of passage and exclusion, providing insight into the struggles and hope of those in flight. Traces is the companion volume to Liminal Matter: Fences, a first portfolio published in 2014 and also available from Passages Bookshop.
