Publisher's Description

Selected as one of the best books of 2015 Kassel Photobook Festival

Shortlisted for Photobook Award at Arles Photography Festival

In 2008 the war against the drug cartels erupted in Mexico. The state of nuevo leon in northeastern Mexico became an increasingly violent place. This book is a compilation of images and texts that obsessively revisit places where the war was eventually fought and look for signs of an evil that lay underneath but was invisible to everyone´s eyes at the moment these images were shot.

Edition of 190 signed and numbered softcover risograph booklets + 1 offset poster + 1 risograph postcard. $55 plus $25 for donkey shipping in the USA and Mexico. ** 10 of these books were stolen during shipping. I will include 10 more numbers to the edition: 191 to 200
