Shortlisted for Best Photobook 2014/2015 Kassel Photobook 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.
Before the War is published in a limited edition of 190 signed and numbered softcover risograph booklets + 1 offset poster + 1 risograph postcard.
