I wanted to convey the hard lives of Latino immigrants. Their faces are simplified to stress how this community is undervalued and ignored. At the same time, I wanted to highlight the beauty that exists in their everyday lives by something as simple as a musician playing his saxophone. I used spots of bright color in an otherwise muted palette.
