David Taylor documents boundary between US, Mexico

David Taylor documents boundary between US, Mexico

March 8, 2014

CAMBRIDGE — A border is an abstraction. A line in the sand? Less than that, even: a line on the sand. Yet when that sand is in the US Southwest, the abstraction has enormous consequences: diplomatic, cultural, economic, and, above all, human. The photographs David Taylor has taken for his “Working the Line” project seek to make that abstraction vivid and visible. “David Taylor: Working the Line” runs at Harvard’s David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies through May 18.

All About Feathers (Costa Rica) chronicles a security guard who wants in on the cockfighting game; he buys, befriends, and grows deeply attached to his rooster protégé Rocky, in this grim yet quirky feature debut from Costa Rican director Neto Villalobos. “I see the beauty in chaos,” Villalobos explains, “I know there are a lot of magical places in Costa Rica, and beautiful beaches, but that’s not what I wanted to show. I love that, but I think there is beauty in this other Costa Rica that people are not used to seeing.”

In The Summer of Flying Fish (Chile), first-...
