About this project
Drug cartel conflicts in border towns like Tijuana have taken their toll. Nowhere is this more obvious than in area orphanages, many of which are stretched beyond their capacity as more and more children find themselves without a home.
Thousands of children in Tijuana live in extreme poverty. Fortunately some of their lives are made better by the amazing people I met there.
This August, Zucchero, a gallery in Mexico City, will host a month-long exhibition of my work with Baja California orphanages.
I hope that this exhibition will help to raise awareness and show people in Mexico City the urgency of the issue. It will also serve as a springboard as I continue my exploration of the lives of children in the wake of the border cartel wars, and make possible future exhibitions and publishing opportunities.

Risks and challenges
The work will be printed in Los Angeles and shipped to Mexico City. Occasionally shipping mishaps do occur, but I'll be packing everything as securely as possible and shipping through a priority account to minimize risks of mishandling.
The success of any exhibition is never a sure thing, but this event is being strongly promoted in local media and online, and the gallery has a large number of regular visitors.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
