Many of the photos are taken in the Mexican border town of Tijuana: “I was able to get much closer there because drugs cartels were not in charge of smuggling people.”
Among Grassani’s subjects were a large group of Central Americans, walking hundreds of miles from homes in Guatemala and Honduras to the US:
“They were very strong at the beginning, walking like crazy. I spent four days with them – day by day you could see them getting tired because they had no food, nothing with them.”
It’s the first part of a photographic project looking at walls all over the world.
