Hi Guys,

I'm a photographer and am travelling from Mexico to Argentina on 27/10/09 till 27/04/10. The point of my trip is to do a photo story on the effects drug and gang culture has on normal people living in each country. The idea is to do a story in each country but with each being interlinked so at the end I'll have a more rounded picture of life in Central and South America.

I've been doing a lot of research and have a few things planned in a few different countries which I'm still investigating. The issue I have though is that without having been to the region before it is quite hard, even with a lot of reading, to get my head around how things work in each country.

What I'm looking for are tips and possible ideas on people and places to shoot in each country. Does anyone know of any drug rehabilitation institutes, charities set up to help people effected etc? Any bits of information anyone has would be really appreciated, and if anyone has any other interesting stories/events that you could recomend I would also be really interested in hearing about them.

Thank you for your time,

Dan Kendall
