Faces from San Carlos, Colombia

Entry Description

People of San Carlos, Colombia, are traumatized. For decades they have suffered under the violence between guerrilla and paramilitary forces. Almost everybody can report murdered family members. At the moment violence is calming down; so people take the risk to relocate with the help of the government to their destroyed homes. I photographed 20 stories. Next year I plan to go back to offer photography workshops to support the healing process of the local high school students.
