Digital Mural Project: Branca Nitzsche

Saturday, August 26, 2006 - Thursday, April 12, 2007

San Francisco-based Brazilian photographer Branca Nitzsche created a digital mural that invokes the issue facing millions of undocumented workers who toil in all parts of the state and country without the right to attain a driving license.

Born in Brazil and currently living in San Francisco, Branca’s mural depicts a man sitting beside a lone white van in a dusty rural area amidst a pile of bikes. Her image invokes the issue facing millions of undocumented workers who toil in all parts of the state and country without the right to attain a driving license. Branca’s photography focuses on the everyday life of marginalized communities around the world. Her mural was chosen by a panel of artists, among them muralist and educator John Leaños, curator Raquel de Anda and Galería’s Executive Director, Carolina Ponce de Leon.
