Remesas - Sending Money Back - Hudson 12534 on view April 19 - May 17, 2010 in the window at 348 Warren St.

"In 2003 I started photographing establishments that provide money-transfer services, from barbershops and shoe stores to businesses specializing exclusively in check-cashing and money transferring. I am interested in the physicality of these places where, among other things, the second largest source of foreign income to Mexico is transacted. I have amassed an extensive archive of these pictures, with each one containing the store location and the name of the few source companies that collect fees charged for each money transaction (such as Western Union or Money Gram)."
