Join us in welcoming Stephen Ferry as he presents Violentology, a product of ten years of photographic documentation in Colombia. This manual is a combination of original photography with archival imagery and carefully researched text to provide a historical and eyewitness account of the war in Colombia. His work focuses on human rights and the struggle of Colombian civilians to resist the violence, often at great risk to their own lives.
- Stephen Ferry has traveled to dozens of countries, covering social and political change, human rights, and the environment, on assignment for publications such as National Geographic, GEO, TIME and the New York Times. Mr. Ferry created Violentology as a platform to discuss the Colombian conflict, the visual documentation human rights, and the prospect of peace in that war-torn country.
- Guests will be able to purchase a copy of Violentology: A Manual of the Colombian Conflict, for $30!
