Alexandra Ellerbeck, Emmanuel Guillén Lozano, Alejandra Ibarra Chaoul and Ginger Thompson sat together early 2019 to talk about the crisis of press freedom in Mexico and photojournalism, framed in the exhibition Attacks on the Press: Mexico, where the video installation of La Ley del Monte was shown, in the Bronx Documentary Center and Photoville in 2018.
This conversation is adapted from a public talk
at Photoville in New York on September 15, 2018, produced by United
Photo Industries and presented in partnership with PhotoWings, with
additional support by The Philip and Edith Leonian Foundation and Two Trees Management. This talk coincided with the traveling exhibition Attacks on the Press: Mexico, which was on view July 12–August 3, 2018 at the Bronx Documentary Center.
