Bordered Lives

Transgender Portraits from Mexico

By Kike Arnal

“Photography can make a powerful contribution to the spread of tolerance simply by making people visible to each other. That is just what Bordered Lives does, without fuss or frills.”—Peter Galassi, former chief curator of photography, The Museum of Modern Art

Originally from Venezuela and now based in the San Francisco Bay Area, Kike Arnal has covered stories in the Americas, the Middle East, Asia, and Europe. His photographs have been featured in the New York Times, Life, and Mother Jones, among other leading publications, and have been collected in one previous work, In the Shadow of Power. He has directed and produced video documentaries, including Yanomami Malaria for the Discovery Channel.
