Today’s daily Photojournalism Links collection highlights Kirsten Luce's work from the U.S.-Mexico border in Texas. The Rio Grande Valley in the southern tip of the state is one of the busiest points for illegal crossings anywhere along the long border between the two countries. Migrants and smugglers travel north using the region's landscape of marshes and dense brushes as camouflage before fording the Rio Grande and scaling or slipping through the border fence and making their way further into Texas. U.S. Customs and Border Protection has stepped up its presence in the Valley in order to try and cut down the number of successful crossings. Luce's striking aerial photographs capture the tracking of these wanna-be migrants and smugglers from above.
