Reckoning at the Frontier
by Eros Hoagland
Reckoning at the Frontier examines Mexico’s struggle with organized crime through the introspective photographs of photojournalist Eros Hoagland. Focused on the border cities of Tijuana and Ciudad Juárez, Hoagland travels through the harsh deserts and urban mazes of northern Mexico. Part journalistic reportage and part artistic exploration, Reckoning at the Frontier goes beyond typical drug war imagery to reveal a parallel narrative about the price of complacency, the power of fear, and the consequences of corruption.
