I met this gentleman through a friend. He had recently come out to said friend, after many years, as an undocumented resident living in the United States. He shared with my friend, and eventually with me, the struggles of living undocumented in the U.S. The fear of being discovered and the constant anonymity one must live in. He agreed to a portrait as long as I kept his identity anonymous. 

Like him, many others must hide in plain sight in order to make a better life for themselves in this country. Always living in fear, but always hoping for something better.
