Stories and Photos

Join us for an evening of photojournalism and discussion with Zach Krahmer, a local award-winning photojournalist who documented FARC guerrilla fighters transitioning to peace in Colombia after the end of their 52-year-long civil war. 

Currently living in UN Transition zones, the former FARC guerrillas are undergoing a process of disarmament, demobilization, and reintegration. Come hear their life stories and see their large-scale portraits (made with a 19th-century wet-plate photographic process).

This will be the debut of Zach’s collection of portraits, which will be available to view during posted hours until May 19th.
