A special correspondent for Getty Images, John Moore has photographed undocumented immigration to the United States for 10 years, always with the intent of humanizing a complex issue. His photos contextualize the migrants’ dangerous journey from Central America and the U.S. government’s attempt to stop them at the border. Moore’s rare access to U.S. immigration prisons, including detention centers for children, is unparalleled. His 2018 photograph “Girl Crying On the Border” was published worldwide, and created an emotional debate over current U.S. policy. His fairness in covering all sides of the story sets his work apart.
