Photographer Timothy Fadek follows a brave journalist as she reports on murder in Juarez, Mexico

"Meet Lucy Sosa. As a reporter for El Diario, the newspaper in Ciudad Juárez, right across the border from El Paso, Texas, she had covered more than 8,000 murders by her own count over the last 27 years. Much of her reporting is on the drug cartels operating in and around Juárez. Chapo Guzman's infamous Sinaloa Cartel wanted her dead because of her reporting. They sent her death threats and eventually the cartel sent a hit squad to try to finish her off. But as luck would have it, a change in her schedule that day saved her: they were waiting for her at work at a specific time but she was away. It had eventually become too dangerous for Lucy to work, so her editors took her off the crime beat for two years. Once the threats had subsided, she was back to work where she felt she belonged. And this single mother of two has no intention to cease her reporting on crime nor on leaving Juárez."
