Between January 2016 and February 2019, 462 social leaders were killed according to the State Ombudsman (Defensoria del Pueblo). Here some pictures.

Featured on 6 Mois website, a picture I took during the peasant festival Return to EL Pato at Guayabal, Caqueta department in Colombia (November 2017)
During Visa pour l'image this year, Part of The Other Colombia was screened. Here, an interview I gave to France Bleue Catalan
Between 20 and 27 June 27, 2017, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC-EP) end to hand over their weapons after a 53 years old internal war.
This portrait series presents guerrilleros from the transitional zone of La Carmelita, Putumayo, Colombia. It has been shoot at the beginning of June 2017, while they began to hand over the weapons
Relearning how to have a sedentary life, the guerrilleros built their own home and start their transition to civil life, learning the use of new tools. For years, they lived on camps blending into the green jungle. The security compels them to use the monotone colors of camouflage. Now, free again to find their singularity, they are decorating their home according to a vibrant color palette and are posing in front of the walls recently painted of the buildings where they will begin their new life.
