Residents of a transborder community have a unique third home between two nations: the bridges, walkways and roads that make up the path from one country to another. Artist Ingrid Leyva’s portraits in Mexican Shoppers depict the consistent flow of people who cross the El Paso/Cd. Juarez and San Ysidro/Tijuana borders to go shopping or return home from shopping trips in the United States. For Ingrid, this collective portrait creates a sense of belonging in a community that blends the culture of two different countries.
