The Atlas of Beauty. Tales by Mihaela: Medellin, Colombia

written by Anca Negescu April 22, 2015

“Medellin is a city with a tumultuous past, it is the place that Pablo Escobar used to call home and from where he used to run his entire mob network. Its inhabitants had lived under continuous terror for many years. After I arrived there, I discovered some of the most interesting feminine faces. I tried to tell them about my project, but they wouldn’t even stop. They would walk by in a hurry without even looking at me. After a while, someone explained to me that they were afraid to allow me to photograph them because they did not know me personally and didn’t know who I really was. It was with much difficulty that I finally photographed Estefania.” Mihaela Noroc
