ACCIDENTES GEO-GRÁFICOS

Accidentes Geo-gráficos
is an attempt to investigate through photography a traditional story told by Afrocolombians and shared through generations, one that tells that in times of slavery traditional Afro hairstyles were used by the cimarrones (maroons) as maps to escape to freedom. Guided by several testimonies, I intend to bring together what is braided in the body to what one day was its reference. I do this without forgetting the journey of crossing through nature is an element present in many chapters of Colombian History.

The memory of these journeys, of escape and pursuit of freedom is an invisible mark on the mountains, the jungles and the rivers of Colombia, and survives as a silent metaphor drawn in the body of its population.
