Voices Breaking Boundaries (VBB) is pleased to announce its Houston launch of Borderlines Volume 2, a publication featuring photos, essays, poetry, and interviews that explore issues erupting in North American and South Asian border regions.

Woven throughout the essays and poetry are production photographs by artists from Bangladesh, Canada, Houston, India, Mexico, Pakistan, and the US-Mexico border, who have participated in VBB’s Borderlines productions since 2013. The cover image is from No Man's Land, a collaborative project between Bangladeshi and Indian artists and was shared with VBB through Britto Arts Trust (Bangladesh).
