Jake Price: Riding The Rails

Photograph Jake Price-All Rights Reserved

Jake Price is a documentary photographer who recently published Riding The Rails, an audio photo essay on the BBC website.

The photo essay is of the hundreds of people from South and Central America as well as Mexico's poorest regions who pass through Lecheria, a small factory town just outside Mexico City, on their way to the borders of the United States.

A number of participants in the Foundry Photojournalism Workshop produced similar photo essays: among them is Matt Wright-Steel with his Migrantes multimedia photo essay, and myself with Los Migrantes.
