Jesús Abad Colorado
Colombian photographer Jesús Abad Colorado, talks about his book "Mirar la vida profunda", a publication that gathers 25 years of work. In his presentation, he admits that “he has seen all the pain" of Colombia, and although some people consider him as a photographer of war, he defined himself as a reporter of life.

For him, death as a concept has always been close. However, when he goes out to document, he goes with the idea of ¿¿returning alive. The book, he confirms, is targeted to a society that has to understand the history of the country, creating a state of reflection, not of hatred or revenge. Longing for a country where its inhabitants die of old age.

The latest edition of ArtNexus (# 101), has, as its cover, a picture by Jesus Abad Colorado and an article by Santiago Rueda. According to Rueda "Trained as a journalist at Universidad de Antioquia, incensed and shielded only by his camera, Abad Colordado launched himself not into an abyss but into the eye of the storm, in search of a direct, authentic encounter with the actors and protagonists of the conflict".
