Colombia, Tierra de Luz (Colombia, Land of Light), consists in a series of symbolic acts of support for victims of violence and those who are displaced in different parts of Colombia, through the medium of photography and art. It is a voice which confronts all the silence and lack of interest in those that have been marginalized and affected by the armed conflict after more than half a century.
