I Have a Name
Sunday, Sept. 14—Sunday, Oct. 12, 2014 Cathedral Nave
For over two years, writer Robert Adler and photographer Tom Feher visited a shelter in Oaxaca, Mexico, where they interviewed and photographed Central American and Mexican migrantes who were on their way to the US. The result of their effort is a remarkable exhibition called "I Have A Name", a collection of 30 striking life-sized photographs with quotes from each of the immigrants, together with a book describing each individual's harrowing journey.
The photographs are printed on aluminum sheets and hung at eye level "so you can meet each person face to face and realize that they are you and I, not "them". They are fellow human beings who have suffered immeasurably; they are not just statistics." states Feher.
