“La cruel realidad”, or the "cruel reality", is an ongoing family photo project of undocumented families living in my hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.     The aspiration is to visually depict the familial fragmentation that occurs when undocumented parents are deported and their documented children remain, often left in limbo.   The name of this project was chosen by several of the families. Each family also receives a "normal" family photograph, often the first and only that they have.
