Candelaria & Salt Cedar

Elisa Larvego

A project by Elisa Larvego, Fieldwork: Marfa, 2012

Candelaria (USA) is a village of about one hundred inhabitants, including almost sixty children, located where the road stops in the Chihuahuan Desert. It's situated across the Rio Grande from San Antonio del Bravo in Mexico, but there's no direct transport link between the two villages.
In the 1990's, the American government closed down the school in Candelaria, officially for financial reasons. On the Mexican side, there's no school or school bus, as the dirt road linking the village to the only town in the area, Ojinaga, is very bad.
