The Backway - La Vanguardia

These pieces from The Backway have been published in national and international media, as well as long-running pieces printed in La Vanguardia. This set of works, produced by Xavier Aldekoa and RUIDO Photo, capture the story of those looking to reach Europe through one of the most dangerous migration routes in the world.

With the National Geographic grant, "Documenting Human Migrations," we traveled more than 7,000 km across seven countries– a three-year work that resulted in 11 publications.
