This project, by American photographer Stephen Ferry, was supported by the Tim Hetherington Grant, a joint initiative of World Press Photo and Human Rights Watch.
Violentology: A Manual of the Colombian Conflict looks at the history and current dynamics of the war in Colombia, while exposing the role of the distinct parties in the conflict. Colombia suffers one of the longest-running guerilla wars in the world with over 3.5 million people forced to flee the violence. The photographer saw that no comprehensive photographic work existed on the war and decided to move to Colombia. Now, after a decade of photographic fieldwork, the project will be widely distributed across three platforms: an exhibition; a book; and selected chapters in the form of booklets free of charge available as a PDF.
