A photographer takes aim at America’s collective amnesia of history. Traveling through the region we now call the American West - the previously Mexican-ruled territories of California, New Mexico and Texas - he traces the pre-1848 border and encounters families that have lived in the region since long before the US takeover.
His quest reveals suppressed memories and fascinating personal histories, shining new light on identities - indigenous, mestizo, Crypto-Jewish, Afro-Latin - that remain ignored and distorted in the official versions of history still taught today.
