My name is Charlie Cordero, I am a documentary photographer of 27 years based in Colombia, with studies of Photojournalism (University of Girona) in Girona, Spain and Master in Editorial Photography and Photojournalism of the school of Arts TAI (Rey Juan Carlos University) in Madrid, Spain. The recurrent themes in my work are: human rights, gender ideology, memory and reconciliation, conflicts and land use. With a photographic style that tries to play between the classic documentary and the contemporary photography, between the descriptive and the interpretive between the direct and the lyrical, between the decisive moment and the interstitial moment.
