TALK

Tonight at the Franco Parenti Theater in Milan, on the occasion of Holocaust Memorial Day, I will talk about border walls as a prominent part of today’s global landscape. In 1989 there were 15 border walls worldwide, today there are 70. With my new project “A Wall In-Between” I follow the international migration routes linking this modern obsession for border control with climate change and environmental migration, to offer through photography a glimpse of what our planet will be in the next future. Today, border walls no longer divide different ideologies, but the rich from the poor and there will be 120 million new poor by 2030 in the world due to climate change (source UN).
“We risk a ‘climate apartheid’ scenario where the wealthy pay to escape overheating, hunger and conflict while the rest of the world is left to suffer.” Philip Alston, UN Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights. More info here.

NEW ONGOING PROJECT

It is already some weeks I am working here in Mexico on my new ongoing project A Wall In Between. I am now in Benjamin Hill, a town in the state of Sonora. In the picture a Central American migrant climbs onto a freight train headed north to the United States. Many of the migrants making this journey are robbed or assaulted by gangs who control the train tops, and others fall asleep and tumble down, losing limbs or perishing under the wheels of the trains. More news and updates coming soon!

In the picture an illegal Central American migrant comes out of a manhole where he lives, along the road that flanks the border between Mexico and the United States of America, waiting for the right moment to cross the border.
