I travelled to affected areas in Antioquia, around Medellin, to regions once dominated by the FARC, who would mine sites as a defense mechanism against the army. Systematic identification of explosives has yet to be completed. As a result, the marking that has been so far applied is
literally in the land: that is what the red sticks we see in the images stand for. Like the lone tree in Cambodia, the central red stick was my guide as I gradually advanced into the mined area in the jungle. This series is composed of seven images.
I worked in collaboration with the HALO Trust Demining Program in Colombia.
