Violentology: A Manual of the Colombian Conflict documents Colombia’s  internal armed conflict. This photographic work focuses on human rights and on the struggle of Colombian civilians to resist the violence, often at great risk to their own lives.



In order to  reach a broad audience in Colombia and abroad, Violentology is available through three formats. This distribution model is supported by an Audience Engagement Grant from the Open Society Institute.


Production of this book is supported  by the Tim Hetherington Grant, awarded by World Press Photo and Human Rights Watch in honor of Tim Hetherington, a brilliant documentary photographer killed in 2011 while covering the Libyan revolution.
