A march against the social leaders's murders in Colombia

Nadege Mazars

On July 26, 2019, several tens of thousands of people walked in Colombia, calling on the government to find a way to stop the murders of social leaders. Between January 2016 and February 2019, 462 social leaders were killed according to the State Ombudsman (Defensoria del Pueblo). Here some pictures.

A really pleasant assignment for The Lily, portraying the city where I live since 2007.

20 Fotógrafos 2018 - Bolivia

Nadege Mazars

20 fotógrafos is a meeting of photographers organized each year in some part of Latin America by Colectivo +1, a collective of Colombian photographers. This year, was in Concepción (Bolivia). The idea is really simple and very effective: a group of 20 tutors is developing each one a project with 2 students and under the support of 5 editors. It means for one week around 100 people all fascinated by photography are sharing experiences and anlysis, practices, good ideas and errors or failure. So, it’s a big camp and for me as a tutor, with, well three students, Vanessa Terán,Juan Manuel Lobatón, and Andrés Stani Jablonski, it was a rewarding experience. Our project was about a local myth, the Jichi, and our editor was Magdalena Herrera..

And here the online portfolio I did during the assignment: https://www.lemonde.fr/ameriques/portfolio/2018/08/24/le-desarroi-des-migrants-venezueliens-a-la-frontiere-colombo-equatorienne_5345748_3222.html

Berlingske - July 2018

Nadege Mazars

Reportage with Linnea Fehrm at La Gotera Jail where all the 1500 inmates, former gang members, are converted to Christinaity. I took the pictures on April 19, 2018 in this jail. And it was perhaps one of the most surprising place I was, with a total contrast between tattoo and bible, crime and redemption.

Stern Crime - June 2018

Nadege Mazars

One year ago in April 2017, when I heard about the former gang members converted to Christianity, it was something really strange and new for me, something I never thank about. To be honest I came to El Salvador with the idea of no working on the "gang issue". Three months later I came back to El Salvador to discover an unknown world.
This story, first published with Stern Crime here, has been and continue to be more than a reportage. Because I approached and tried to understand the complexity into which El Salvador is caught. And first at all the young people, caught in a war without name. For those who were affiliated to a gang and search to go out, there is few options to change their life. There is no specific public policy, except repression. Only some evangelical churches open their doors. Here comes a part of the story.
