Congressional Briefing and Exhibit on Borderlands

Photographers, Environmentalists, Human Rights Activists Join Forces to Highlight Impacts of Border Wall

Ian Shive’s images will be part of a group effort by the International League of Conservation Photographers and other non-profits to lobby U.S. Congress to halt construction of the border fence along the US/Mexico border. The legislation being reintroduced is the Border Security and Responsibility Act of 2009 by rep. Raul Grijalva (Tuscon, AZ). Ian’s photos appear in a short documentary  being presented at a Congressional briefing on Monday, April 27th and four of his images will be part of a group exhibit on Capitol Hill on Wednesday, April 29th. All are invited to attend the exhibit during the day until 5:30pm. Special thanks to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology for production of the film.
