Making Music from Migrants’ Items

“Efigy” by Richard Misrach



American photographer Richard Misrach and Mexican composer Guillermo Galindo are two artists who have come together to depict the migrant experience on the Mexican/US border. Richard has spent 15 years taking pictures of items left behind by migrants. Then he met Guillermo who was making music about the migrant experience. Richard now collects pieces he finds and sends them to Guillermo who turns them into instruments.
