Summary
Happy to share some images of one of my latest collaborations for El País, accompanying the text by Laura J. Varo.


After the reopening of Spanish-Moroccan land borders, the border town of Barrio Chino (Morocco) on the other side of the fence, whose passage is still closed and whose inhabitants used to work in Melilla, hardly feels the difference. Farida, a domestic worker from Barrio Chino,  who used to work in Melilla, has been one of the many cross-border workers affected by the border closure. She has been out of work for two years and now she must apply for a visa to return to work in Melilla. On assignment for EL PAÍS, text by Laura J. Varo.
