These objects put a face on the migration crisis

I recently attended an exhibition featuring the work of University of North Carolina professor and visual artist Susan Harbage Page.

The collection is made up of 867 objects including toothbrushes, shoes, backpacks, ID cards, and small Bibles, all meant to remind the viewer of the human face behind the politics of the U.S. immigration debate.
