Mixteco/RVA is a photographic book art project about the author’s yearlong journey toward understanding linguistic injustice amongst Virginia’s Latin American immigrants—Spanish-speaking and otherwise. Written and photographed by Christine Stoddard, the bilingual accordion-style book was designed by Kristen Rebelo and contains a written contribution by Zack Budryk. The book was premiered at the Virginia Center for Latin American Art’s December 2013 First Friday event in Richmond, Virginia. A large print of one of the book’s photographs hangs at the Sacred Heart Center in Richmond.
