Footprints is a human-centered national traveling exhibit designed to expose new communities to the struggles of immigrants communities in the United States of America.
In the summer of 2010, Saul Flores–then a 20-year-old student, undertook a 10-country, 5,000-mile walk, from Quito, Ecuador, to Charlotte, NC, to alleviate the tension on migrant communities in the US.
The Footprints exhibit consists of 15 photographs that will begin circulation on January 1st, 2014 across national and international venues across the world.
During the Walk of the Immigrants, which paralleled the arduous and often dangerous trip that many migrants take as they travel north to attempt to move into the U.S., Flores took over 20,000 photos of the lives of people and places along the way. Proceeds from the sale of his photographs and sponsorships of his journey are aiding an elementary school in his mother’s hometown, the small rural community of Atencingo, Mexico.
