Sicarios: Latin American Assassins is a fruit of the 2011 FotoEvidence Book Award. Sicarios: Latin American Assassins takes the viewer into the underworld of the assassin in Guatemala, where society has been savaged by a culture of murder for hire. Hit men operate with impunity in a country where ninety-five percent of murders remain unsolved. Javier Arcenillas comes face to face with several young assassins, the bodies they leave in their wake and the people who struggle with the consequences. Sicarios is selected as one of the Best photo books of 2011 by Photo-Eye.
