Item description for Colombia: A New Vision by Santiago Harker...
The hope and tragedy of the Colombian people is richly portrayed in this photographic journey into their mysterious and magical country. Lush images venture deep within scenes of a Colombia preserved by childhood memories, where friendship, family, and love illustrate the warmth and depth of a people enriched by a complex interaction of European, African, and Native American cultures. A tour through the towns and villages of the country's mountains, valleys, rivers, and rain forests depict the hope and profound determination of a people to overcome the troubles that have cast a shadow on their happiness and livelihood.
