Migration Photos
Listen to the:
The Rockefeller Foundation funded a project in the small village of Monte Blanco, Mexico where nine women were asked to photograph images of migration. Their photos often reflect images of loss: old people or children sitting alone; discarded toys; empty streets.

Even family gatherings have no young people in them, because 30% of the population -- mostly young men and women -- have left the village in search of work in the U.S. or the cities of northern Mexico. Conrad Fox reports that one of the photographers now wants to become a journalist, but that means migrating to northern Mexico or the U.S. to earn enough money to go to college.
