Promotional Information

This project presents a unique collaboration between photographer Richard Misrach and composer and performer Guillermo Galindo. A unique melding of the artist as documentarian and interpreter, the book will include several suites of photographs drawn from a number of distinct series, or Cantos-some made with a large-format camera as well as an iPhone. The book will also contain a compilation of two dozen sculpture-instruments, graphic scores, instrument designs, and links to videos of performances by Galindo on the image-inspired instruments.

Reviews

A new collaborative book of photography and art, "Border Cantos," by photographer Richard Misrach and experimental composer Guillermo Galindo, captures some of the ostentatious absurdity of the border wall and the calamities, cultures, and artifacts that surround it. Bilingual, multi-genre, international, and multi-media, "Border Cantos" (Aperture, 2016) breaks down the obvious duality of any wall that you are either on this side, or on that side and exposes the human and environmental consequences of decades of political recklessness. "The Nation" Amid all the political talk of building a wall between the U.S. and Mexico, Richard Misrach and Guillermo Galindo offer a poignant meditation on the patchwork borderline that now exists. "American Photo," Best Photography Book of Summer 2016 The pair collaborated in a traveling exhibition as well as this catalog, in which Misrach s visual artistry renders the desolate scenes all the more stunning.
