    “The El Paso/Juarez border community is the largest border community in the world and is a one-of-a-kind, distinctly vibrant community. For decades we have been haunted by negative media coverage, whether it be about illegal immigration or serial killings, and although these events cannot be denied, they only represent a minute percentage of life on the border…After finding my place as a photographer, I then decided to communicate through photography the same stories of home I had been telling for years. Each photograph in this series is filled with personal significance and shows locations and experiences that are a part of my life and the lives of other born-and-raised El Pasoans and Juarenses.” – Chuy Benitez, photographer
