These photos are meant to honor Juarez for its people, its landmarks, its heart and soul. The government and the crime have served to only destroy the beauty that I wish to remind people of. With these images, I hope to show off the beauty that still resides in our torn sister city. This is not a "before and after" series. I was not there in its hey-day, in my Mom's and Grandpa's time. This is how the city looks now, without the war.
If you haven't been in a while, I understand. Many of these photos were taken while looking over my shoulder for the law, and the lawless. Sadly, many people who saw me also saw me with a bit a fear. But, I am happy to report that the majority of the "regular", hard-working people in Juarez are still generous, courteous, and kind, despite their circumstances.
If you wish to purchase any of these photographs, you can do so from this website, just press the "add to cart" button. Or contact me through my e-mail for print prices, up to 16"x20" posters.
Thank you for your time and attention.
