Fui Sin Haber Nacido is a photo book that documents my relationship between New Orleans and Latin America, specifically using archival material from my family, as well research done about the Latinx community in New Orleans in the 20th century. Preserving a history through documents and newspapers about the community that was built during the banana trade. The book navigates, in chronological order, the impact of Latin Americans in New Orleans until present day post-Katrina, and traces the community of migrants who reconstructed our city. Today, Louisiana is rapidly becoming the epicenter for migrant detention, with prisons being built in rural areas and collecting asylum- seekers for profit and political gain.
