Honduran writer and documentary photojournalist. My work focuses on Latin American conflict as it relates to the drug war, forced displacement, and urban dispossession. I seek to bind the disparate threads of communities into the grand interlinked story of the Western Hemisphere. In covering the different types of violence facing the region’s people, I hope to create a record of both continental struggles and local successes.
