Juan Manuel Echavarría

Colombian photographer Juan Manuel Echavarría's extraordinary photographs capture the horror of the violence that saturates the history of his beleaguered country. The 50-year civil war between the army, guerrillas, right-wing paramilitaries and drug cartels has been responsible for the victimization and murder of thousands of Colombian peasants. Comprising both color studio shots and haunting black-and-white images from the countryside, Echavarria's moody photographs depict devastated villages, depopulated landscapes and melancholy, symbolically charged objects.
