Aperture is pleased to present this limited-edition print in conjunction with the publication of Aperture #226, "American Destiny.”

“The people in these photographs, the descendants of the survivors of conquest, land appropriation, and ethnic cleansing, continue to migrate across arbitrary borders, the product of the clash between the European and the native views of land. It is the same earth cultivated over thousands of years, the same routes followed north and south. This continuous thread is Landeros’s visual narrative as well as her own story.” — Sandra Cisneros
