Colombia on My Mind (2011)

I was born in a country with an on-going civil war, just like my mother and grandmother.  Colombia on My Mind is a personal journal that reflects how  Colombians live and raise their families, and conduct their lives with this endless situation of corruption, impunity, pace processes and war in the background.  The interpretations of these images depend on the subjectivity of the viewer. For me as a Colombian, life in my country is a state of waiting, living every day in the middle of invisible boundaries that divide our country. The wonder of peace.
