Distilling fragments from her work in Cambodia and in the United States, Jeanne Morel's That Crossing Is Not Automatic presents a collage of edges—images moving from refugee camps to American prisons, from airports to taxi cabs, from immigration to deportation—offering us a dictionary, if not an atlas, of sites for our possible crossings.
