I just returned from a 10 day shoot in Colombia, for a UNFPA project that profiles young people who are helping to rehabilitate their communities after conflict or natural disasters.
The shoot took place in an area called Montes de Maria where guerrillas and paramilitary took over local villages and waged warfare against each other.
The young women we met were so full of life despite the tragic loss of family and community. We did a poetry workshop and talked with them about the issue of gender-based violence.
