Santo Tomas Mexico


I just got back home from a documentary project, where I was photographing a church project in Santo Tomas Mexico where they built a basketball court for a troubled boys home that is set to open very soon and will provide a place to live, for kids who made it into the legal system but are not hard core or bad enough to be transferred into an adult penal system. All of the land donated by a widow (pictured above) who has been living in the same home for all of her 78 years and at some point in the last couple of years her roof was destroyed, so she has been sleeping on the bottom bunk of a bunk bed with several pieces of plywood leaned up against it to shield her from the weather. Upon learning about this the construction team working on the boys home split off and sent a over roofer and a framer to build her a new roof along with the help of the locals.
I strung all 3622 frames of the construction projects together in one slide presentation, no omissions or deletions so take a look and see what I saw.
