What are the borders in your life? Borders Snapshots are short meditations, reflections, and ideas about borders. A border can be a boundary between countries, or a point in your life: leaving home, growing older, a new job, a new town, any point in your life where you cross from one thing to another.

What does a Snapshot look like? It can be a digital video, a poem, an essay, music or photography — anything which explores borders, real and imagined, visible and invisible.

Submit your own Snapshot.
