Life After Pablo
(La vida después de Pablo)
LIFE AFTER PABLO is an in depth look at the rebirth of the once most violent city in the world: Medellin, Colombia. This raw and simple approach proves that human expression when combined with high self esteem can lift the hopes and by default the intrinsic value of a city no matter the state in which it may find itself at any given time.
In December of 2016 I spent 30 days in the city of Medellin, Colombia with the intention of discovering the magical ingredients responsible for the rebirth of this once
considered most violent city in the world.
With the help of a local and his social network, Manuel Contreras, I set off to interviewing anyone and everyone that would be interested in sharing anything and everything they knew about their beloved city and its history.
I was able to shoot in many important locations and with much luck I was granted access to epic characters that are deeply embedded in the city's social and cultural fabric.
