Amina Cruz’s photography is striking. Her work celebrates queer and trans BIPOC people and spaces on both sides of the Mexico/U.S. border. These portraits are intimate, bringing out the personalities and histories of the individuals, even as Cruz’s photographs also conjure the shared social histories and experiences of the community.
We’re honored to present this portfolio of Cruz’s photography alongside Gutiérrez’s accompanying essay, “Slow Burn.”
