The  Radcliffe Line  documents memory and ritual in the context of border-making through the lens of Partition survivors in Punjabi Pakistan and India.    At 21 years old I traveled along the Punjab border of Pakistan and India. I documented war stories from survivors from the 1947 partition of India and the consequences of colonial boundary-making.    The actual Radcliffe Line, which tore through shrines and neighborhoods, was drawn by one Sir Cyril Radcliffe. A seasoned lawyer, Radcliffe had no experience in cartography nor had he ever stepped foot in India before he was tasked with drawing the border that would divide land and faith.
