Berlingske - July 2018

Nadege Mazars

Reportage with Linnea Fehrm at La Gotera Jail where all the 1500 inmates, former gang members, are converted to Christinaity. I took the pictures on April 19, 2018 in this jail. And it was perhaps one of the most surprising place I was, with a total contrast between tattoo and bible, crime and redemption. 

Stern Crime - June 2018

Nadege Mazars

One year ago in April 2017, when I heard about the former gang members converted to Christianity, it was something really strange and new for me, something I never thank about. To be honest I came to El Salvador with the idea of no working on the "gang issue". Three months later I came back to El Salvador to discover an unknown world.
This story, first published with Stern Crime here, has been and continue to be more than a reportage. Because I approached and tried to understand the complexity into which El Salvador is caught. And first at all the young people, caught in a war without name. For those who were affiliated to a gang and search to go out, there is few options to change their life. There is no specific public policy, except repression. Only some evangelical churches open their doors. Here comes a part of the story.
