To put it simply, borders primarily enforce boundaries, minimizing — if not eliminating — gray areas.
They can indicate physical lines separating political and/or geographic regions, and they can also be applied to metaphysical confines we apply to our everyday lives via human interaction and relationships.
For this annual exhibition, we encouraged photographers to consider the concept of borders as both physical barriers and as intangible perimeters.
