Don Bartletti: The Roads Most Traveled

01. Bound To El Norte

Don Bartletti is a Pulitzer prize-winning photojournalist who in this video talks about the causes and consequences of illegal immigration. He gets to know the people trying to cross the border and captures the rigorous process many of them endure. He speaks about them in a loving manner, explaining their stories and their desires for a better life. These immigrants are sacrificing everything to live on the sides of highways and in the middle of crops to try and make their way in. This is a controversial and important topic, especially in light of the current election. I think Bartletti’s work is great and provides faces and stories to a major issue our country has and continues to experience.
