La Hora del Recreo

In 2010 I was asked to put together and lead a group of photographers in order to create a comprehensive collection of images that would show clearly how child labor is an omnipresent reality in many latin american countries, and what the Proniño Program is doing to get them back to school. About 5 million children work in Latin America, and that is the area where Proniño operates. Walter Astrada, Álvaro Ybarra Zavala, Lurdes R. Basolí, Renzo Giraldo and myself spent a few weeks in five different countries photographing and interviewing these children. 

Each chapter was accompanied by a short text written by some of the most prominent writers of the spanish and hispanic literary landscape, such as Espido Freire, Fernando Marías, Fernando Iwasaki, Lola Beccaría, Vicente Molina Foix, Santiago Roncagliolo, Héctor Abad, Ángeles Caso, Alonso Cueto, Gustavo Martín Garzo, Luisgé Martín, Ricardo Menéndez Salmón, Soledad Puértolas, Rosa Regás, Javier Reverte, Marta Rivera de la Cruz and Care santos.
