MEXICO - From 2009 till 2011, Voeten focused on the drug related violence that is destabilizing Mexico. He visited the epicenter of the violence, Ciudad Juarez, as well as other hot spots such as Culiacan and Michoacan.
With introductary essays by El Paso based anthropologist Howard Campbell as well as Culiacan based writer Javier Valdez Cardenas, this hard hitting photobook tries to explains why the drug violence in Mexico can no longer be ignored as a fringe criminal problem, since it is eroding the very fundaments of our human civilization. The bookdesign, sober yet strong, is the work of renowned Dutch designer Jan Kleingeld who also designed 'A Ticket To', Voeten's first photo book.
War photographer Teun Voeten, renowned for his earlier work in Bosnia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Sierra Leone and Colombia is with a grant of The Pascal Decroos Fund working on a photo book on the drug violence.
The Pascal Decroos Fund for Investigative Journalism is a project of the independent non-profit organisation Journalismfund.eu established with the purpose of keeping the memory of Pascal Decroos alive and continuing his life's work. Contact
