Since 2010 Getty Images special correspondent John Moore has been laser-focused on the issue of immigration to the United States. He is unmatched in the field for his comprehensive photography of undocumented immigration and the militarization of the U.S.-Mexico border.
Moore’s exclusive access to immigrants on all points of their journey, ICE agents, Border Patrol agents, the USCIS and dozens of NGOs here and abroad, has yielded deep-rooted, multiple perspectives into this multi-layered movement.
For its broad scope, compassionate storytelling, and rigorous point of view, Moore's ongoing body of work is the essential record on this dominant US domestic topic. Undocumented features essays and photos from Central America and Mexico about: the journey north; the border; securing the frontier; life in a divided nation; and the experience of being detained and deported.
Undocumented also features several portrait series, including undocumented migrants, prisoners in immigration jails, and new American citizens.
