Carey Averbook: Only the Bridge Matters Now

On View: June 24 - September 3, 2017

Jenkins Community Gallery

Only the Bridge Matters Now is a multimedia documentary web, photography, and book project by Carey Averbook that explores the metaphorical bridge linking the Bolivian communities of Northern Virginia to their region of origin, the Valle Alto.

It is said that Valle Alteños residing in Virginia do not migrate; they bring everything with them to Virginia so they are able to continue their lives almost exactly as if they were in Bolivia.

By sustaining tradition, memory, and an immense love for their hometowns, the Valle Alteños keep families and communities united and create a multidimensional bridge between Bolivia and Virginia.
