As a photographer, Guillaume Chauvin seeks to question the subjectivity of images and affirm his documentary point of view. He is accustomed to venturing off the beaten track and experimenting. In this series of images, he documents the everyday lives of various Colombians, from schoolchildren and farmers to veterinarians and soldiers. Chauvin, detached from the particular constraints of the journalist, delivers a personal investigation of a culture about which he knew nothing but stereotypes. The book is a sensitive and dense inquiry into coloured truths that unfolds through visual and literary images, ensuring the magic realism dear to Colombians is never far away.
