Sabiduría a flor de piel (Wisdom on the skin) is a visual homage to some of the elders of the aboriginal people Nasa and Misak from Colombia.
Women and men who are pillars for their communities, repository of the memory and wisdom if their people and which knowledge and life must be take in account for a better future. Most of the Elders have passed away but for me I'm proud of this image to any one of them while they were alive.
A honor to work with Gustavo and Juan Yonda in this project. My most deep thanks to each one of the people Who let me be part of their lives and take an small snapshot for this project.
It includes an itinerant exhibition, a website and a free e-book. From 18.000 photographs taken during 4 months 230 were delivered in hand to the people who gave me the honor to take an snapshot of their lives. And I selected 10 for the itinerant exposition which has been displayed in 3 Reservations of the Nasa and Misak people so far.
