Michelle Frankfurter’s new book Destino (destination/destiny) documents the story of illegal migrants who attempt to cross into the USA from Mexico. Many are from Central America, have travelled for weeks, often alone, wandering in the wilderness, too afraid to turn back, each step made in trepidation of what may lie ahead. It is a harrowing tale and Frankfurter’s photographs capture the anguish and hardship of this rough road, a journey she shared in part with her subjects.
