On the far left side of this photograph, a teenage boy (Bryan) places his hand on a bright, orange wall dappled with shadows. He looks toward the center of the image, where a framed photograph sits on a wooden end table on top of a circular lace mat that is white, green, and red. The framed picture shows a family portrait with a middle-aged woman (Lourdes), two teenage girls (Lulys and Pamela), and Bryan. Next to the portrait is a jar with a pink bow inside a plastic bag.

Friday, Oct. 20, 2017 at the former home of Luis Quintana Chaparro in San Nicolás, Mexico. Bryan looks at a family photograph displayed in the home of his father, Luis Quintana Chaparro. The picture was taken shortly after his father was deported from the United States in 2010, and it was sent to him as a reminder of the family he was forced to leave behind.
