Day 3: good evening! i have been given the keys to @wpanyc
for the #wpatakeover, october 15-21. i am presenting images from an ongoing project at the us/mexico border. the spotlight will be on the “guardian angel” to nogales, francisco olachea-martin, as well as some of the people he serves and works with everyday. “panchito’s” selfless, tireless dedication to offering aid to migrants, recent deportees and those in extreme poverty is unrivaled. today’s images are from an ‘orphanage’ and shelter/rehab center run by “iglesia en la calle” where panchito volunteers as a medic, driver and basically anything else that is needed at the moment. that’s the kind of guy he is. •
