Migrant Optics: The Sweater

Note: Given America is in full holiday, I’ll be publishing some much shorter pieces. Many are pictures I’ve been holding on to for a while and wanted to share.

Intimate or invasive? Here’s the caption:

A migrant sits up at the Saint Ludovic border crossing on the Mediterranean Sea between Vintimille, Italy and Menton, France, June 15, 2015. On Saturday, some 200 migrants, principally from Eritrea and Sudan, attempted to cross the border from Italy and were blocked by Italian police and French gendarmes.

I don’t know about you but I feel like I just stumbled unannounced into somebody’s bedroom.
