YileneEn28 in Singapore shows the river that serves as a physical and political border between Singapore and Malaysia, a view she describes as “bittersweet” – “I am actually a newly converted Singaporean from Malaysia. The landscape of Malaysia seems to always remind me of a piece of me I had left behind for my future, and what indeed was different for me now compared to the past.”
Strawberry1234 in Melbourne, Australia ponders more metaphorical borders: “This picture was taken on the school bus after an exhausting day of school. After thinking about life, I turned around and noticed that a border was right beside me. This picture illustrates a window and outside there is the road. The border is between my school life and the outside world. I believe this picture shows my endless opportunities waiting in my future.”
Alyss7nicole in Oregon, USA focuses on social and economic boundaries in the city of Portland, defined by different sides of the river. “I noticed the clothing left from homeless people living out here next to a used needle trash dispensary … although, this could be seen a stereotypical output for all those living across the bridge. But from my experience this is what I have come across.”
Jhopeful708 in Singapore photographed her cute bunnies to point to the protective nature of some boundaries: “We want to prevent them from escaping, getting lost, or running to areas they shouldn’t be accessing.” She draws parallels with the kinds of protective boundaries in place for humans.
Kenyaclark207 in Utah, USA describes the allure of borders. “Boundaries exist to make us wonder about what could be … we desire to know more about something we can’t fully experience.”
