Jérôme Sessini: The Wrong Side. Living on the Mexican Border
Since the president Felipe Calderon declared an all out war on the narco-traffickers in December 2006, Mexico has been plunged into a veritable civil conflict. The war declared to drug lords caused an unprecedented outburst of violence in the whole country. Under pressure for their lucrative routes, the traffickers are fighting both among themselves, and against Mexican Federal forces. The conflict has already cost the lives of 26,000 people: narcos, policemen and civilians.
In 2008 the photographer Jérôme Sessini started the Mexican project: a dive into the drug cartels war in Mexico. This compelling reportage, lasting two years, is a valuable document about the most dangerous cities in the country: Culiacan, Tijuana and especially Ciudad Juarez.
