Photographer Louie Palu is taking over Pulitzer Center's Instagram account this week. He will be posting photos from his previous reporting from Afghanistan and from his Pulitzer Center-supported project "Drawing the Line: The U.S.- Mexico Border." For this project, Palu traveled from California to Texas on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border to document local lives, the economy, and security challenges they face. 

Palu is a Canadian photographer and filmmaker. His work focuses on social-political issues such as human rights, conflict, and poverty.
