In 2008 the war against the drug cartels erupted in Mexico. The state of Nuevo Leon in northeastern Mexico became an increasingly violent place. This book is a compilation of images and texts that obsessively revisit places where the war was eventually fought and look for signs of an evil that lay underneath but was invisible to everyone´s eyes at the moment these images were shot.

Before the War is published in a limited edition of 190 signed and numbered softcover risograph booklets + 1 offset poster + 1 risograph postcard.
