Photo essay: Faces of Colombia
One day someone asked me, “Is Colombia beautiful?” I had been traveling and taking pictures for ten years, from Asia through the Americas. And yet I was not sure if should say “yes.” I am Colombian, and I could not be sure.
Once back in Colombia I took my camera and went north. I was overwhelmed by the places, indigenous peoples, and ethnic groups I’d never seen before. I had not been a traveler in my own country and the experience was magical.
These are some of the most beautiful faces I found.
