Happy holidays from the borderlands!
Happy holidays to all of our Panorama backers. We're sad to report that we don't have a completed project ready to publish — yet. But our team has been hard at work, having made a number of reporting trips along the Arizona-Mexico border.
Our effort was slowed by both the brutal triple-digit heat that lasted for months during the summer, and a dangerous uptick in cartel violence in a couple of remote stretches. Sending reporters into those places during those periods would've honestly put their lives at serious risk.
Here's a special sneek peak at some of the photos our team has captured. We pledge to provide more frequent updates going ahead. There are still some beautiful and very rugged places we've yet to slog through, and we look forward to sharing them with you and the rest of the world.
