Scott Dalton, winner of the 2011 Michael P. Smith Fund For Documentary Photography grant, will present his award-winning project So Close, So Far: Daily Life and Cartel Violence in Ciudad Juárez.

Dalton’s project explores daily life in the border city of Ciudad Juárez, a city in the midst of a vicious cartel drug war. Averaging over 3,000 murders a year, Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, has become one of the most dangerous cities on earth.

Tom Rankin, the Director of the Center for Documentary Studies, writes, ‘Scott Dalton’s images reveal the hard edges of conflict while also illuminating the eloquent textures of ordinary life. Dalton’s images suggest the sense of loss that relentless violence so firmly delivers.’”
