Life and Death in The Northern Pass

A young boy keeps warm by a fire in the Diaz Ordaz colonia, one of the oldest maquila worker settlements in the city. After the passing of several free trade agreements between the United States and Mexico, hundreds of thousands of immigrants left their poor villages in search for better jobs in the factories in Juarez. They began building slums into the hills with whatever materials they could find. These neighborhoods would later become the front lines in the current drug war.
