What Migrants Carry on the Journey to the U.S3D Model
These three objects belonged to apprehended migrants who entered the U.S. from Mexico. They are among thousands of confiscated items photographer Tom Kiefer found in the trash while working as a janitor at a U.S. Border Patrol facility in Arizona.
Our augmented reality series What They Carried tells the story of migrants, many of whom are children, through the personal possessions they choose to carry with them. We visited Tom’s studo and used photogrammetry to capture these objects.
The table was modeled in Blender and textured in Substance Painter.
