Detention, Deportation, Incarceration and the Border

Silicon Valley De-Bug’s Class Conscious Photographers presents images that shine a light on the impact on our communities of the incarceration of
people, whether in prisons or in immigrant detention centers, and the deportation of migrants and the border itself.

Advocating for social change is part of a long tradition of social documentary photography in the United States and Mexico, and the work of the photographers in this show contributes to this tradition today. We are activist photographers, participants in the movements for social justice.

These movements are the subject of our photographs, which have a role in helping our movements grow.
