Over the last year, images of people leaving Central America to travel to the U.S.-Mexico border have inundated the news cycle. Many of those images have been made by journalists and photographers who are not from Central America, and some of those images have been criticized for focusing on misery and trauma, more than on humanity.

Tomas Ayuso is a Honduran writer and photographer who decided to change that by documenting the lives of individuals across Honduras, in his project “The Right to Grow Old.” In this segment of “How I Made It,” Tomas shares how he met Moises and Meya, two of the people he documented for his project, and how he followed them from Honduras as they made their way to the U.S.-Mexico Border.
