Hector Mata, a 2008 Aperture Portfolio Prize Runner-Up, opens Limbo an exhbiition on view at the Los Angeles Center for Digital Art. A Peruvian native, Mata compares the United States and Mexican border to the Roman Catholic tradition of Limbo as an intermediary state designated for un-baptized babies and of the just who died before Christ. The concept of torn identity has been a personal focus of Mata’s, and his images are aimed at showing their manifest in physical divides.
