Zach Krahmer, a local award-winning photojournalist 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.  See their large-scale portraits (made with a 19th-century wet-plate photographic process).

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