On the Streets of Juárez: A portfolio of photos
Warning: The first one and the third one are gruesome.
Award-winning photographer Julián Cardona has spent many years documenting life in Ciudad Juárez and elsewhere in the border regions of northern Mexico. His primary focus has been the economic and social impact of globalization—the foreign factories, the sprawling colonia, the cross-border traffic in people and drugs. His photographs appear in Juárez: The Laboratory of Our Future (1998), by Charles Bowden, and in Exodus/Éxodo (2008), also with Charles Bowden. In 2004, Cardona was the recipient of the Lannan Foundation Cultural Freedom Fellowship. Cardona’s work has been exhibited in Mexico, the United States, and Europe. He is based in Ciudad Juárez. Cardona figures prominently in Ed Vulliamy’s book Amexica: War Along the Borderline, excerpted on vf.com, and we present a portfolio of his work here.
