These pictures were taken during my research trips to El Salvador in 2011, 2012, and 2013. Obviously, for me as a young scholar it is very difficult to get images that speak of the tremendous violence that people suffer from or that would portray state responses to violence. The main obstacle for me was the risk to carry a camera on a public bus – buses are frequent targets of robbery and assaults. Luckily, on the day I experienced an intended robbery, I didn’t have my camera with me.
