This collaborative micro exhibition was created by Beinecke Road Show workshop participants drawing on materials in thier personal archives.
Through a series of Instagram posts, contributions explore specific travel documents to convey meaningful and compelling information about the life and experiences of the individual who owned, carried, modified, or lost them.
