More than 2 million Salvadorans left the country in search of new opportunities. The money sent home, so-called remittances, account for the country’s largest source of income totalling 3.5 billion a year. Practically every family has a “Faraway Brother,” a relative living abroad and sending home money. This much needed support is sometimes spent on building extravagant houses, often in rural areas, as testaments to the success of a family’s faraway brother. Walterio Iraheta portrays these genre-defying houses with a photographical style straight out of the Taschen architecture series.
