Slide 16: What Their Eyes Have Seen

Soldiers Searching Bus Passengers, Northern Highway, El Salvador 1980 by Susan Meiselas (National Galleries of Scotland).

In her series, "Border Crossings," photographer Susan Meiselas exposed the desperate, secret attempts to escape into the United States away from the violence that was plaguing Central America.

"For those undocumented workers who have crossed successfully, we Americans rarely ask who they are or why they have left their homelands," said Meiselas. "We pass their silent faces on the streets, in stores, even within our homes. We see their eyes, but we don't know what their eyes have seen."
