Méjan Association

The Kogi Indians

The memory of possibilities

Who are the Kogi people? Where and how do they live? What type of dialogue can we have with them? To what end, regarding the pressing questions of our age? 40 photographic works by Éric Julien show a profoundly human society in which everything is “sign”. A society whose last heirs, refugees in the upper valleys of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, look with sadness upon their little brothers, “the civilised, as they call themselves,” destroying the web of life.
