Colombia

Colombia

June 23, 2016

Based in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Caro Patlis is a documentary photographer who recently embarked on a lengthy journey that led to the lush and mountainous country of Colombia, South America. Enjoy her words and photos…

Without many plans — just a couple of backpacks, my camera and the idea of travelling without a schedule — we started a journey through South America and Cuba that lasted a year. Our last stop was Colombia, which is a beautiful and diverse country. We couldn’t cover it all, but managed to spend a considerable amount of time in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta mountains of the north and the Caribbean region. These images portray some of our many experiences.
