Durham Deportation City Well Samuel
Durham Deportation City Well Samuel

Samuel and his beloved Bible in Mexico after he was deported. Samuel Oliver-Bruno is a Mexican #immigrant who was living in #sanctuary at CityWell Church in Durham, N.C. since late 2017. The day after Thanksgiving, November 23, 2018, he was lured to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services office in Morrisville for a fingerprint appoint -- part of the process to have a stay on his deportation, and ultimately become a citizen. He was suddenly arrested by #ICE agents, but not after his church community blocked his detention van from leaving the parking lot for hours. Samuel is diabetic, and when he was ultimately deported by ICE they sent across the border with very little insulin, no syringes, or monitor, no cash and none of his personal belongings.

The Pamlico Sound whipped up by a strong southwest wind at twilight. Personal work. “For the sea lies all about us… In its mysterious past it encompasses all the dim origins of life and receives in the end, after, it may be, many transmutations, the dead husks of that same life. For all at last return to the sea -- to Oceanus, the ocean river, like the ever-flowing stream of time, the beginning and the end." - Rachel Carson

Erosion on the Outer Banks
Erosion on the Outer Banks

Tourists run past the graves of Little Pharaoh Payne, a WWII veteran, and his wife, Hilda, which have been exhumed by storm surge. Threatened by sea level rise, the Salvo Community Cemetery on Hatteras Island is also vulnerable to erosion caused by foot traffic, which wears away the sand banks. Locals get irritated when tourists don’t respect the resting place of their ancestors. The cemetery is bound by the Pamlico Sound and the Salvo Day Use Area. Both lie within the Cape Hatteras National Seashore, which is managed by the National Park Service. But the cemetery is not maintained by the Park Service, but privately owned by the community, which is scrambling to raise the funds to save it. The next major storms threaten to wash it into the Pamlico Sound.

According to a 2017 CBS news report there were 10,000 #evictions in Durham, North Carolina from June 2016 to June 2017, primarily affecting low and fixed-income African American and Hispanic renters in rapidly gentrifying neighborhoods. #Durham also has an acute affordable housing shortage. Eviction often leads to homelessness and alcohol or drug dependency. From an ongoing portrait series.
