Don Bartletti, Enrique's Journey Photojournalist

Sonia Nazario has a prominent presence in Enrique's Journey. Less present in the text is photojournalist Don Bartletti, who also made the harrowing journey for the story. Bartletti is the artist behind the photos in the book, including the cover art of a young boy riding atop a train.

Bartletti has traveled over five continents and received over 40 career awards for his work, including the Pulitzer Prize for the LA Times Enrique's Journey series. He is quoted by the L.A. Times as saying, "Photojournalism is an adventure that falls somewhere between cultural anthropology and a scavenger hunt. "

As you read Enrique's Journey, don't forget to view Bartletti's photos, a reminder of Enrique and other migrants' real-life roles in this nonfiction book. Visit Bartletti's LA Times biography to view an extensive photo gallery, or click here to see pictures and learn more about his Pulitzer Prize.

This is a very impressive book. There is so much going on in this world that we have no clue about. Sonia Nazario brings detailed events to this story that can only be told by one who has made the journey herself.
