Photo Documentary – The Right to Grow Old: The Honduran Migrant Crisis

A five-chapter photo documentary on the Honduran migrant crisis throughout Central America, from Honduras to the United States.


Chapter I – First Borders

Migration is born as a result of different rights becoming elusive in 21st century Honduras: the right to housing, the right to a dignified source of income, and more recently, the right to grow old. The following five part photo documentary attempts to answer why Hondurans have taken to the US-bound migrant route, where they come from, how they do it, what happens when they cross into other countries, the threats they face along the route, what life is like for those who succeed and what happens to Hondurans who return willingly or otherwise.
