About Tom Kiefer
Featured on LensCulture
- By photographing the personal items taken from individuals at a U.S. Customs and Border Patrol processing facility, photographer Tom Kiefer makes us question the unjust treatment of migrants across the globe.
- Toothbrush? Non-essential. Soap, too. Shoelaces: dangerous contraband. At the U.S. Border Patrol facility in Arizona, we discover the scant belongings of attempted immigrants who were apprehended in the desert, seized on their path towards “the American Dream.”
