IG Story with Le Monde

IG story with Le Monde today, about the low Caguán river and life after the peace signed, in this territory at the borderline of wilderness land.
A reportage I did with Marie Delcas. We met a lot of people with concerns of what will happen now. Big issues threatening this land, like deforestation.

Le Monde - Portfolio

On assignment for Le Monde, here comes the portfolio about life at Peña Roja, a little village on the bank of the Caguán river, Caquetá, and at the verge of the Amazonian jungle.
So happy to share this reportage with Marie Delcas.
Feel so lucky too…!!
Thanks to Marie Sumalla and Olivia Colo


Pictures and publication on Libération about the story of Teodora, sentenced to 30 years in jail after a miscarriage, the perseverance of Ceci, her sister, to denounce the injustice, and the fight of Agrupación Cuidadana por la Depenalización del Aborto en El Salvador.
Criminalization of abortion in el Salvador is so total and blind that a woman can be convicted for a homicide after a miscarriage.
Strong story by Anne Proenza

RISC Training in Medellín

Between 5-8 December 2017, I followed the RISC Training with 23 others journalists. First time RISC organized a training in Latin America. Fantastic teaching, thanks also to Wilderness Medical Associates International. I'm now graduate to a Battlefield Medical Response… hope to never have to put it into practice, but ready to do it.
I can only advise to any journalist to do this training. DO IT!

Chronique d'Amnesty International about Abortion in El Salvador

In El Salvador, there are women going to jail after having a miscarriage, charged for homicide and convicted for 30 years. 
The abortion penalization is absolute and there are total confusion and suspicion that most of the time turned against women with humble origins. Women can't have abortion including when pregnancy is a real danger for their life, including when the pregnancy is a consequence of a rape, including when the girl is only 12…
Teodora is one of these women. She called the emergency when she felt she was about to give birth… They didn't arrived on time, she fainted, didn't realized she lost her baby, and when the medical service came to her, it was to report to the police. In December, her sentence, 30 years imprisonment, was confirmed…

Please have a look to the special feature of Chronique d'Amnesty International, November 2017, with my pictures in El Salvador and a sensitive text by Anne Proenza.

The IWMF supported the first steps of this reportage as part of its Adelante Latin America Reporting Initiative.
