"Life and Death in The Northern Pass" Exhibit
Aug. 15- Jan. 14, 2011
Photojournalist and Pulitzer Center grantee, Dominic Bracco II will present his work at the University of Texas at Arlington. Bracco's talk: "The Lost Generation: Globalization, Youth Culture and Violence in Ciudad Juárez" will discuss his work about North American and Mexican border policies.
Bracco's photos are the heart of a new exhibit, “Life and Death in The Northern Pass.”
Chris Conway, coordinator of the exhibit and an associate professor of modern languages, called Bracco’s work "astonishingly brave and illuminating photojournalism."
“Dominic is reporting from the front lines of a devastating war that is occurring at our very doorstep, and his work can help us understand its impact on Mexico and the United States,” said Conway, who was one of Bracco’s professors. “His photography attests to a phenomenal ability to gain the trust of his subjects, regardless of whether they are gang members, children, or the grieving parents of a murder victim.”
The exhibit is the first in a series of fall events focused on “The War Next Door: Narco-Violence and the U.S. Mexico Border.” All events are free and open to the public.
