Re: “Douglas Revisited

Bernal's photography is both brilliant and immediately touching.
Simmons-Myers, herself an extraordinary photographer, extends herself unconditionally to others in her field. I remember her work to organize and present an international auction of photographs to assist the Bernal family during his long illness.

Re: “Douglas Revisited

I'm so grateful that this photography has been rediscovered and so lovingly cared for by this group of people. I grew up hearing about Louie and also Lupe and Memo and the Quinones family. I've only meet these family members a few times if at all. I'm lucky, my mom (Francisca) tells stories from that time and reanimates those memories for me. My mother talked about Louie and his important photography for years, as they both lived in Douglas, and then later Phoenix. The line in the story about the thirteen year old girl later being deported twenty-six years later made me weep unexpectedly. It's so important to tell the true cost of our produce here in Estados Unidos. I'm proud to be kin to the man who shone a beautiful light into the homes of the immigrants (And in some cases, my very own family members!). My auntie sent a link, and I can barely wait to call my mom and talk about this article together. After so many years it's bittersweet. I don't know if I can make it to Douglas, but I encourage everyone to see this show.
