About the Artist
Cuban-American artist Rigoberto Diaz captures the physical reality of what it’s like to be an illegal immigrant with his stark, intimate photography. From the vehicles used to transport illegal immigrants over the border to the objects they leave behind, Diaz traces the steps of those brave enough to fight for a better tomorrow.
In his series Death Trucks, we see the harsh conditions immigrants are forced to endure as they make their way to the border. Every truck becomes a makeshift home, giving some sense of hope to the many faces that inhabit it.
