Every year, thousands of migrants cross the Mediterranean sea for Europe, in hope of a better life. Many enter via Italy's south. In late 2014, I reported from the island of Pantelleria and Sicily on Europe's migration crisis and resulting border policies, producing an interactive multimedia project (photographs, text, audio, GoPro, camera footage).
