The annual Book Award will be given each year to a photographer whose work demonstrates courage and commitment in documenting social injustice and violations of human rights.The award is made possible through the generosity of individual supporters of FotoEvidence.
Sicarios: Latin American Assassins takes the viewer into the underworld of the assassin in Guatemala, where society has been savaged by a culture of murder for hire. 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.
