Days after Joaquín Guzmán was recaptured, people in living in Sierra Madre Mountains in Mexico’s Durango state wouldn’t say much of the world’s most wanted drug lord, the notorious “El Chapo.”
“Almost no one we talked to could even bring themselves to say his name, let alone admit any knowledge whatsoever of him,” photojournalist Allison Shelleytold In Sight. “Was it out of fear or respect? Perhaps a very intense combination.”
Alongside Washington Post reporter Joshua Partlow, Shelley traveled deep into the mountainous where as many as 1,000 people fled for safety after an unsuccessful attempt by the Mexican Marines to capture El Chapo. She documented their journey on her Instagram.
