Last September, the prestigious Leica Oskar Barnack Awards 2019 took place in Berlin and we featured two of the finalists in Client US13 for their outstanding b/w photography essays. Here is the work of Francesco Anselmi, with descriptions of each photograph below each image.
Francesco Anselmi was born in Milan in 1984 and studied at the International Center of Photography. He was also a finalist of the Leica Oskar Barnack Award back in 2014. In Francesco’s ‘Borderlands’ project, he visited the border between Mexico and the United States, a vast 3200 kilometres long. Pictures from the Mexican side are shared frequently in the media, but Francesco decided to visit the American side and he asked himself, ‘What is life like in the shadow of the wall?’
