Praise for Bordered Lives
"A record of the lives of courageous Mexicans who have taken nontraditional gender out of the category of the freakish and into the realm of the humanly possible. Breathtaking."
--Alma Guillermoprieto, author of Looking for History and The Heart That Bleeds

"Photography can make a powerful contribution to the spread of tolerance simply by making people visible to each other. That is just what Bordered Lives does, without fuss or frills."
--Peter Galassi, former chief curator of photography, The Museum of Modern Art

"Too often the faces around us are lost and their stories are ignored. The photographs in Bordered Lives allow us to linger and discover new worlds."
--David Mixner, author of Stranger Among Friends

--San Francisco Chronicle on Kike Arnal's In the Shadow of Power
