Ada Trillo is a documentary photographer based in Philadelphia, PA and Juarez, Mexico. Trillo’s work is concerned with human rights issues facing Latin American culture. She has documented forced prostitution in Juarez and the recent migrant caravan attempting to reach the U.S.. Ada Trillo grew up in Juarez, Mexico, at one time, called the most violent city in the world. Her photographs capture the cruelty and injustice of failed and inhumane immigration policies that continue to devastate migrants from Mexico and South and Central America. She often returns to the US/Mexican border driven by her desire to tell the stories of the otherwise forgotten.
