My private map of Santiago/ Santiago... Mi mapa personal
Gorbea Primary School,1945 Class
Although this is not a picture from Santiago or any place near this big city, the main character of this is my grandfather, who is one of the children portraited here. To begin with, this school was founded by anglican missionaries during the first half of the 20th.Century. During these hard days, mapuche children had very few opportunities to attend or finish primary school. Because of that, it is touching the immaculate poverty an of these children. Finally, I hope you notice how proud these childre are, despite that some of them are barefoot and have rag clothes instead of school uniforms.
