Jeff Antebi: Drug Violence in Juarez

image/jpeg icon

Photographer, Jeff Antebi, has been working on a long term essay documenting the "murder captial" city of Juárez, Mexico. Consumed by drug violence, this city, only a short drive from El Paso, has felt the loss of more than 2,000 people in the last year.

Antebi spent three days, during the month of December, photographing the law enforcement officers and the people that have been affected by this extreme violence.

His work will be featured as an exhibit in the Month of Photography Los Angeles.

Antebi's Photo Essay: Drug Violence in Juarez is also featured as a slide show, with commentary by the photographer, on PBS's The Rundown blog.
