Larry Towell

In The Walrus you can find this appreciation of Larry Towell. A while back, in the wake of a remarkable talk/performance Towell gave here in Rochester, I posted several times on he and his work [1] [2] [3] [4]. His work typically is subtly but quite unmistakably political. And he is extremely creative in his efforts to link images and words.
* "In Tijuana, Mexico, a memorial hangs on the US-Mexico wall to honour the more than 3,000 migrants who at the time had died attempting to cross the desert. Children walk along the wall, known locally as “the scar”, on their way home from school." UNFPA, State of World Population Report 2006
