Jackie Neale

Crossing Over: Immigration Stories is a storytelling documentary made by Jackie Neale using the historical photographic process, cyanotype (made popular by Anna Atkins), to create large format anonymous portraits that accompany audio interviews with immigrants, descendants of immigrants, and asylum seekers living either on the border of Mexico, within Mexico, and in Northern and Southern Italy. This project intends to discuss immigration in various forms and the pursuit of residence, citizenship, education, asylum seeking, migrant farming, and the process of crossing over in the immigration process.
