Photojournalist Tish Lampert has spent her career documenting human rights battles across the globe. Her latest body of work examines human rights questions much closer to home. “Exposing Migration: The Spirit of the American Dream” illustrates what it’s like to travel along the U.S.-Mexico border — and elevates the humanity that’s often lost in polarized, politicized discussions about immigration, asylum and security.

The exhibit opens with a free public reception Saturday, February 8, from 3 to 5 p.m. The show runs through March 5 in the José Drudis-Biada Art Gallery on Mount Saint Mary’s University’s Chalon Campus.

The opening reception also marks the public debut of Lampert’s new book, “We Protest: Fighting For What We Believe In,” which will be published March 5 by Rizzoli. The book captures the recent wave of social and civic activism that’s washed across America and profiles everyday activists fighting for social justice.
