Remnants of Past aims to connect the past of an undocumented immigrant to the present. Jose crossed the US-Mexico border when he was 22 years old. He left because of his family economic situation and in prospects of a better life.

I visited the town of Alvaro Obregon, Tlaxcala, where Jose is originally from. I came back with images from the town and told Jose to write what those images made him feel, especially seeing them after many years. Below are some of the excerpts from the book as he relives his past in Mexico through these images.
