This chapter examines the potential of documentary photography to extend and reposition perceptions of migration, by foregrounding perspectives that are often lost in mainstream reports of migration and, most definitely, in the discourse of prevalent border policies. Photography's ability to disturb the accepted view leads us to imagine otherwise by making possible a reflection on what may be absent. This effort involves a consideration of migration from the vantage point of visual representation, itself a field most often addressed within the academy by the humanities. Bauluz's photograph is unusual in its capture of the dead, as well as of the living. Documentary photography's concern with reality has meant that the lens is often limited, precisely because there is a line where representation falls short of reality. Photography, in its engagement with the latter, opens a space for hospitality through the proposal that it makes for engagement with alterity.
