Sonoyta, Sonora, Mexico

A sixteen year old boy from central America near a safe house for migrants near the border with the US, where he has been living for a few weeks. The last stretch of the journey to the US entails crossing the Sonoran Desert and he is waiting for the intense summer heat to ease so the perilous journey, that can take up to a week, can be attempted. The border town is a hotspot for human and drug smuggling, and has seen spikes of violence over the last years as gangs clash for the control of the illicit trades.
