Cardona died of natural causes on September 21, 2020, in Juarez.


Cardona was considered to be one of the most important photographers documenting the economic challenges and criminal drug-related violence in Mexico along the U.S. border, especially in Ciudad Juarez. His photographs were sometimes criticized for their graphic portrayal of violence, including torture, rape, and murder victims. Other critics observed that Cardona linked the extreme violence and femicide in border cities like Juarez with globalization and especially the influx of Maquiladoras (factories), something that Cardona himself acknowledged and emphasized in interviews. Interviewed on the PBS NewsHour in 2012, Cardona said that "It's an important story, how a city becomes the most violent city on earth. I was able to do it, and I'm OK with that. It's my job."


Cardona received the Cultural Freedom Prize from the Lannan Foundation in 2004. Cardona’s photographic archives are preserved by the Tom and Ethel Bradley Center in the University Library, Special Collections and Archives, California State University, Northridge.


Although he had earlier done some photography for tabloids, in 1993 Cardona began to work professionally as a photojournalist at the Juarez newspapers El Fronterizo and El Diario de Juárez. He co-authored many newspaper and magazine articles along with several books, including Juarez: The Laboratory of Our Future and Exodus/Exodo, both with journalist Charles Bowden. His photographs have also been profiled in several major exhibitions, including Nothing to See (1995), Borders and Beyond (2001), Lines of Sight: Views of the U.S./Mexican Border (2002), Photography Past/Forward: Aperture at 50 (2003), the History of the Future (2009), and Stardust: Memories of the Calle Mariscal (2013). Cardona worked for several years as a Reuters correspondent in Mexico beginning in 2009, and he also was a photography editor in Mexico City. During the final years of his life he worked as a freelance journalist and photographer.
