Teun Voeten is a photojournalist and anthropologist and shows the conflicts in the world in a penetrating, sensitive and yet inexorable way: former Yugoslavia, Rwanda, Colombia, Afghanistan, Chechnya, Liberia, Sierra Leone, more recently Iraq, Lebanon and Gaza strip. Teun Voeten publishes in National Geographic, Vanity Fair, Newsweek, The Guardian, Frankfurter Allgemeine, De Morgen, De Standaard, De Volkskrant and Vrij Nederland.


In 2006, Mexican President Calderón declared war on the cartels that control the multi-billion dollar drug trade. Some leaders have been captured, but their power has not been broken. Roughly 55,000 people have died in the violence so far, more victims than in Iraq and Afghanistan combined. War photographer Teun Voeten has captured the narco war in powerful images, not only the bloodshed, but also the intervention of the authorities, the ensuing social disintegration and a population struggling to maintain its dignity against all odds. With introductory essays by renowned Texas-based anthropologist Howard Campbell and celebrated Mexican writer Javier Valdez Cárdenas.
