Here is a chance to actually tour the American/Mexican Border, personally guided by a leading expert on the border and immigration debacle. This is a rare opportunity to get an honest perspective of the border dynamics through an objective experience presented by a photojournalist and producer of the Living on the border Documentary Series, who has covered both sides of the border for the past 6 years.

Yale University Press, London, “Living on the Border is a fascinating physical, social and psychological state”. Robert Baldock, Editor & Managing Director
The Indypendent, New York, “Karl W. Hoffman has captured the raw moments along the Arizona-Mexico border that challenge the human tendency to draw invisible lines through the landscape and people’s lives. His work is of international significance, from the Sonoran Desert to NY/NY.” Jessica Lee
Tucson Weekly “As an eyewitness to the continuing tragedies, Hoffman brings his camera to the most dangerous areas along the border.” Margaret Regan
My Border Tours and Expeditions are all inclusive, either for a one day tour starting in Arivaca or an expedition package with transportation form Tucson international airport, including meals and accommodations. The main part of the one day tour is through the harsh conditions of the Sonoran Desert to the walls, fences and remote barricades (how effective they really are) that mark the border and the migrant trails. Tours and expeditions can be tailored to your needs and the area of border issues that you are most interested in, along with subject specific interviews. Guided tours include explanations on sites, and terrain,with all the information contained in my lectures about the dynamics of the border phenomenon with in depth discussion. This is a total emersion into the border arena with late afternoon hikes and evening discussions. Evening workshops in postproduction editing, photography, audio and video are also available.
