The dramatic reality of men, women and children making their way to the Mexico-US border in search of a better life is the theme of a photographic essay by José Hernández-Claire entitled “Broken Roots; Illegal Immigration Into the US.” This compelling selection reflects the many perils of those immigrants who struggle to cross the border into the United States.

There will be an opening reception on February 28 at 5 p.m.

The show will go from February 28 - March 28, check the May Gallery website for hours.
