Sometimes I lie awake at night, and I ask, ‘Where have I gone wrong’.
Then a voice says to me, ‘This is going to take more than one night.

And now we’re supposed to go back to our normal lives. That’s what people do. They have these amazing experiences with another person, and then they just go home and clean the bathroom or whatever.

The truth is that teen culture is not homogenous—and neither is fangirl culture. Teenagers are complicated and complex, and they behave differently in different contexts. The average teenager who goes to a Five Seconds of Summer concert and screams her head off is actually capable of writing an essay on the political situation in the Gaza Strip the next day. She’s capable of liking Taylor Swift and disliking heels, of deploying a Twitter hashtag or helping out a charity drive, of loving Twilight and hating Fifty Shades of Grey. She contains multitudes.

Katie Orlinsky

Prison Portraits: The Ciudad Juarez Women’s Prison

War is complex. Sometimes there are obvious victims and clear perpetrators. One good. One evil. Black. White. But more often, participants in a war fall into a hazy middle category: They have committed crimes and suffered from them; inflicted wounds and salved their own.

U.S. photographer Katie Orlinsky moved to Mexico in 2006, just after graduating from college. The drug war surrounded her, and she quickly realized that women — not just men — were serving as its weary warriors, ferrying contraband and kidnapping kingpins. Between 2007 and 2011, the number of women incarcerated for federal crimes rose 400 percent. Orlinsky began to wonder: Who are these women? Innocent victims of a broken system? Cold-hearted criminals? Both?

In 2010, she entered the female prison in Ciudad Juárez and began photographing the convicted women inside. Below, she answers questions about the project.

1. Maria Sol Zocoro, 42, in prison for homicide

2. Nancy Nunez, 22, and daughter Claudia Marlen, 3. Nunez is in prison for drug trafficking

3. Laura Érika Mar, 23, in prison for homicide

4. Julia Fragozo, 28, in prison for drug trafficking

5. Yazmín Mendoza, 27, in prison for drug trafficking

6. Lorena, 50, in prison for drug trafficking. “I am not ashamed. There are worse things,” says Lorena. “My husband is dead and I did it for my children.”

7. Carla Soloria, 27, in prison for drug and weapons trafficking

8. Claudia Ramirez Contreras, 21, and Eunice Ramírez, 19, outside their prison cell in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. The Ramirez sisters were models and party hostesses until they found themselves behind bars, accused of kidnapping

9. Abril Alvarado Ortega, 32, in prison for drug trafficking

No entendía la vida, le había cogido manía y si le coges manía, la vida te la coge a ti. Y es la hostia, de verdad. Cada problema por pequeño que sea se convierte en un mundo, todo es gigante, deforme, monstruoso, un agobiazo. Eso era lo que pasaba, no entendía que la vida es otra cosa. La vida es disfrutar cada día, disfrutar de los viernes, joderse los lunes, jugar en los parques, llorar en los hospitales y abrazarte a quien te abraza y a quien no te abraza no te abrazas, y ya está, no pasa nada… y enfrentarse a los problemas, a todos, a los pequeños y a los grandes, y ganarles a veces y a veces no, echarlos fuera, y caerse, levantarse y volverse a levantar las veces que haga falta.

There’s a point in life when you get tired of chasing everyone and trying to fix everything, but it’s not giving up. It’s realizing that you don’t need certain people and their crap.
