Caras Colombianas (Colombian Faces) Part One

This series shows the diversity of the Colombian people I've met on the streets of Medellín. My first post focuses on men in their early 20s to early 30s.

Andrés Vélez, 23, is a bus dispatcher at the Estadio metro station in central Medellín.

Luis Chalá, 24, is a dancer and English student from El Bosque, a lower-class Medellín neighborhood. Growing up there in the 1990s he experienced some of the city's worst violence. Now he hopes to become an English teacher.

Daniel Felipe Cuartas, 31, graduated with a degree in philosophy but now works as a sports and wildlife photographer in Medellín.
