BORDERLINE is a portrait of the fence that divides the United States and Mexico as seen through the eyes of those who come into contact with it on a daily basis.
Rebecca A. Kandel has traveled from the westernmost side of the border — where the fence literally runs off into the ocean into the middle of the country, where it at times simply disappears — interviewing and photographing those who represent all sides of the immigration debate.
From Border Patrol agents, to “coyotes,” to human rights workers, to vigilantes determined to take matters into their own hands, each person speaks passionately about his point of view on the subject.
REBECCA A. KANDEL is a photographer, designer and teacher currently living in California. A Hampshire college graduate with a Masters from California Institute of the Arts, she documents issues of immigration, US/Latin American relations and youth struggles.
Other projects include El Hospital, La Carcel o El Cementerio, the life of deported gang members in El Salvador.
Her work has been exhibited throughout the United States and internationally and can be seen in a number of published works.
Yellow Peril Gallery is pleased to announce that BORDERLINE, the exhibition of the fence that divides the United States and Mexico as seen through the eyes of those who come into contact with it on a daily basis, will be extended until January 15, 2012. Read more »

Co-Directors Robert Stack and Van Souvannasane moved from New York to Providence, Stack’s birthplace, recently and are pursuing a long time dream of running their own commercial exhibition space. They are also looking to be a space that exhibits work that deals with social issues and really encourages dialogue well beyond exiting the gallery. Now, before you jump to any conclusions about these “strangers”, understand this is exactly what Providence needs, more new blood to keep art spaces from continuing to look inbred. Read more »
Was it Perry or Cain who recently suggested that we electrify the fence that divides Mexico and the southwestern US? I think it was the alleged groper, not the Texas wingnut. Either way, it’s clown time, right? Photographer Rebecca A. Kandel knows about the fence and the stories of heartache and unrest that have blossomed because of its existence. Read more »
