Eroyn Franklin, Detained, 2011

A really fascinating 80 page double-sided accordion that charts the progress of two people through various immigrant detention centers in the Seattle area. One is a man and the other is a women, and their stories are illustrated on either side of this over 25' long accordion. Included with the publication are two oversize drawings that include both people in conversation with their peers. This accordion is an eloquent and unique use of this format to foreground the pressing social & political issues associated with immigration, the detention of immigrants and our larger national immigration policy. 80 pages, 5.5" (h) x 8" (w), open 26' 8".
