Roadmap is a sculptural book describing the journey many take from Honduras, Ecuador, Guatemala, and Mexico to escape violence and poverty. People flee brutal conditions with few possessions, some carrying or sending children alone in a desperate attempt to save their lives.
Each panel of the road map is a story that represents a part of the journey. The back of the book is a symbolic picture of the people living in the shadows. The front cover includes excerpts from “Borderbus” by poet laureate Juan Felipe Herrera, and on the back cover are tweets from President Trump.
