Documentary photographer David W. Lynch: Before the Border

Documentary photographer David W. Lynch shares his first-hand experience traveling alongside thousands of asylum-seekers making their way from Honduras to border camps near the US-Mexico border. Accompanied by Lynch’s striking photographs and stories, from the trail and the informal and formal camps along the way, taken over a year’s time, this discussion will offer a rare glimpse into the lives of migrants as individuals, documenting the diverse humanity of “The Caravans” and the variety of experiences that make up migrant lives. 

The event will begin with a look at Lynch’s earlier work in Guatemala, Haiti, and Mexico, and with teenage refugees from recent conflict zones living in the US, and will be followed by a book signing for Before the Border. Doors are at 6:30.

Location: University Congregational UCC, 4515 16th Ave NE, Seattle, WA, 98105
