The Visual Border Studies Collection includes materials from local photographers, popular media, and other print materials that represent the culture, ecology, and social dynamics of South Texas. The collection will eventually include photographs and videos by Miguel Díaz-Barriga, a visual anthropologist, on farmers markets, organic farming, and the culture of food in South Texas. With Rey Leal (photographer) and Ashley Leal (anthropologist), we organized an exhibit on the lives of veterans that included an opening reception at the Border Studies Archive in Spring 2012. With Margaret E. Dorsey, collection staff are also involved in archiving photographs by Scott Nicol, a professor of art, about the construction and environmental impacts of the US-Mexico Border Wall.
