Mery perdió su esposo en el conflicto armado. Lo mataron en frente de su hija de tan solo 13 años de edad. A punta de machete y jornal sacó a sus seis hijos adelante. Por ella, y todas las víctimas, yo creo en la paz. #sialapaz
I took this photo on my fieldwork in Colombia, her name is Mery and she lost her husband during the armed conflict. He was shot in front of her thirteen year old daughter for no reason. She had to raise her six kids by herself, overcoming fear, anxiety and many other tough things that happen in the countryside in Colombia. For Mery and the victims I believe in the peace agreement in Colombia.
As part of my PhD fieldwork, I collaboratively curated an exhibition with the campesina women of Toca, Boyacá, Colombia in March 2016. My grandparents visited the exhibition!
