LIFE ALONG THE BORDER: the Photography of Jimmy Dorantes

December 4, 2019- March 1, 2020

Life Along the Border is a culmination of the lifelong work of photojournalist Jimmy Dorantes, who has documented the US-Mexico border for over five decades.  This exhibit captures the well-defined history and human narratives of the border region with Mexico and the United States.  This exhibit is the FIRST exhibit produced by the Imperial Valley Desert Museum, and will soon be the feature of a national tour.
