This two-volume project documents the body of water at the US/Mexico border in a photography series and an anthology of writings. Through Leonard’s black-and-white images, the river known as Rio Bravo in Mexico and Rio Grande in the United States is revealed not just as a river but as a political tool, a source of water, and a region that many people call home on either side of the border.
