Two boys looking through the fence of poverty in Guatemala

Two young brothers are looking through the fence around their home made of wire, rags, and sticks to see a stranger with a camera. They live in Pueblo Modelo, one of the poorest communities in Guatemala, and perhaps the world. Many homes here are made of garbage bags and sticks. This photo was taken on a trip to build a small school on the edge of their town.
