The California-Mexico border is heavy with history and uncertain of its future. It is a land of great progress and crushing failure, home to a past that includes migrant workers, Mexican labourers, corporate exploitation, gambling dens and brothels. In 1901, the Imperial Land Company diverted the Colorado river to the area, transforming desert into productive farmland. Vollman studies this area, uncovering the people and their struggles in a photographic portrait of Imperial's last decade.
