Documentary Photography: Ciudad Juárez by Jerome Sessini

From 2008-2011, Magnum nominee Jerome Sessini investigated the underbelly of some of Mexico’s most notorious and violent cities.

 

Ciudad Juarez has a reputation for violence and brutality against women — not because of international concern — but because of the reality and the institutional failures to deal effectively with this reality.

Since 1993 more than 370 young women and girls have been murdered in the cities of Ciudad Juarez and Chihuahua – at least a third suffering sexual violence – without the authorities taking proper measures to investigate and address the problem.
