2016 - Ongoing
In 2016 the Colombian government and the FARC guerrilla movement signed a peace agreement that put an end to more then 50 years of civil war, a war that has claimed 220,000 lives and displaced nearly six million Colombians in a country suffering from extreme inequality, land appropriation, cocaine production and political violence.
These images were taken in the autumn of 2016, just after a narrow majority of Colombians rejected a peace accord in a plebiscite, jeopardising the entire peace process and leaving the country in limbo.
Shortly after the the 'No' vote, however, President Juan Manuel Santos was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize and went back to work, trying to maintain the momentum. In under two months he landed a new deal and finally, after decades of war, Colombia is moving toward peace.
