A JOURNAL OF EXTREMITY

Charles Bowden, "Murder City: Cuidad Juarez and the Global Economy's New Killing Fields"

“Jaime Murrieta always has a smile and, with luck, a bottle of beer. When I first met him in 1995, he had already photographed hundreds of murders for the Juarez newspapers. On September 9, 2006, he was out cruising in the night, looking for his dream photograph. In this ultimate image, he will be holding his camera, the killer will come toward his lens, and Jaime Murrieta will faithfully record his own murder. I remember him telling me in the 1990’s of this dream shot with a smile of his face and passion in his eyes.”
