La Frontera Lecture by photog Louie Palu

La Frontera: The Drug War In Mexico – Lecture

Washington DC

For over a year, award-winning documentary photographer Louie Palu conducted in-depth research and fieldwork on the drug war in Mexico and its relationship to the United States. He traveled more than 2,000 miles along the U.S.-Mexico border, documenting violence, organized crime, and the drug trade.

Palu will discuss his work with Andrés Martinez, Vice President and Editorial Director at New America, and give insights into the ground conditions on the border. He will also present his unique publication, “Mira Mexico,” developed as an outreach tool to illustrate how images influence and manipulate our understanding of an issue.

Join the New America Foundation for this conversation on the social and political issues influencing the current situation in Mexico – and how these factors affect the United States.
