About the prints

Coronado Entrada and Border Wall, 2018
Triptych gelatin silver prints, 40 × 30 cm each (16 x 12 inches each) mounted combined size 106 x 48 cm (42 x 19 inches).

Caption: In the year 1540, eighty years before the Mayflower landed at Plymouth, Francisco Vásquez de Coronado and his expedition of hundreds of Spanish and indigenous people entered what is now the United States at this remote spot in Arizona, initiating centuries of Hispanic rule and cultural influence in the Southwest. In 1848, the U.S. military seized half of Mexico’s land and drew the contemporary border. Today, a barrier wall cuts through this same landscape, a deterrent for Hispanic migrants seeking to enter the U.S.

About the series

Lines and Lineage takes aim at America’s collective amnesia of history. The work addresses the missing photographic record of the period when Mexico ruled what we now know as the American West. To visualize the people and places from the remarkable yet unseen Mexican era, I chose to photograph the region with glass plates and a 19th-century wooden camera. Portraits of direct descendants of early inhabitants of the West—mestizo, Afro-Latin, indigenous, Crypto-Jewish—are are paired with photographs of landscapes inside the original border and architecture from the Mexican period. Lines and Lineage lifts the pervasive fog of dominant Western mythology and makes us question the role that photographs—both present and missing—have played in shaping the identity of the West.

About the show

AIPAD’S Photography Show is the longest-running and foremost exhibition dedicated to the photographic medium, offering a wide range of museum-quality work, including contemporary, modern, and 19th-century photographs as well as photo-based art, video, and new media.

The Baudoin Lebon Gallery was founded in 1976 in Paris. It is a leading dealer of Modern and Contemporary Art, including painting, sculpture and the most significant international photography. The gallery supports radically different works with an enlightened eclecticism.
