Curator: Sandeep Biswas

Rodrigo Torres Barriga, was born in 1965 in the city of Valdivia, Chile.
Since he was a child he has been linked to the world of photography through his father Raul who taught him the alchemy and magic of this art.

The photographs exhibited in this exhibition were taken in Mexico in 2016 during the filming of my documentary "La patria del migrante" and were the result of an investigation into the social phenomenon of Central American migration to the United States. They were taken in the cities of Monterrey and Saltillo.

Throughout Mexico there are different organizations that give temporary shelter to migrants who are passing through, they are called "Casas del Migrante", where they can rest, feed and protect themselves for a few days while they regain strength and continue their journey. it was there where the present photographic portraits were taken and also the interviews for the film documentary.
