In 2016 and 2017, five École Nationale Supérieure de la Photographie graduates, some French, others Colombian, were artists-in-residence at the Alliance Française in Bogota as part of the joint France-Colombia Year. Afro hairdos were photographed by Laura Quiñones Paredes; the Baranquilla region’s reggaeton and champeta dancers by Leslie Moquin; the gold museum’s reserves by Émilie Saubestre; the myth of Tequendama Falls, a sacred Indian site that faded from the country’s collective consciousness, by Andrès Donadio; and Cali residents’ stories by Hilda Caïcedo. Presented at the Museum of Modern Art in Bogota in May and in Arles this summer, the show illustrates the complexity of Colombia, between heritage and change.
