Photojournalism Daily: Oct. 29, 2014

Today's daily Photojournalism Links collection highlights José Colón's powerful work on African migrants trying to reach Spain's North African enclave of Melilla. The photographs intimately capture the hopefuls' desperate and dangerous attempts to bypass the barriers that separate the European territory from Morocco, and some show what they encounter if they manage to cross. They risk everything to seek asylum, work opportunities or just a better life. But in reality, they are often detained and can be sent back.
