In 1999, the inhabitants of the Panama Canal Zone, known as the Zonians, were stripped of their privileges when their land ceased to be a North American territory. Today, some are returning home. These images, taken between 2011 and 2014 in the Panama Canal and Orlando, follow the last moments of their existence as a community.
