Publisher's presentation :

"The project came about due to an intuitive curiosity. It is born out of the development of friendship and trust with Lindelia and Albeiro, young Embera parents who, like many others, were selling jewellery on the streets. The indigenous groups that line the streets of central Bogota are in some way a living memory. We acknowledge their existence as a symbol of heritage, however there is a fractured relationship between this consolation of memory and of the contemporary circumstance they have come to assume.

Today, three generations of indigenous Indians live in the large cities. My experience with these communities, and the work that followed, is evidence of an enforced cultural fusion, however one that has become appropriated and naturalised with time.

I wanted my portraits to reflect this metamorphosis, but also to show the implicit native resistance to the loss of their culture. Upon entering this diary, we feel the strength of their traditional values. This became the central axis: to draw a portrait of dignity, without showing or judging the underlying violence."

Each book is published in a short print run of 100 copies, and all previous series have sold out pretty quickly !
