Book Release and Opening Reception: Saturday, October 22nd, 5:30 – 8:00 pm.
On October 22nd at the opening of the 2011 FotoEvidence Book Award Exhibit at the VII Gallery in Brooklyn, FotoEvidence will release Sicarios: Latin American Assassins by Javier Arcenillas, winner of the first FotoEvidence Book Award. The book will also be available as an IPad app.
Sicarios takes the viewer into the underworld of the assassin in Guatemala, where society has been savaged by a culture of murder for hire. Vendors who don’t like competitors can have them killed for less than $50. Hit men operate with impunity in a country where ninety‐five percent of murders remain unsolved. Javier Arcenillas comes face to face with several young
assassins, the bodies they leave in their wake, and the people who struggle with the consequences.
The FotoEvidence Book Award is granted each year to a documentary photographer whose work demonstrates courage and commitment in documenting social injustice.
The annual 2011 Book Award Exhibit will showcase the work of the winner and five finalists.
