On June 27, 2017, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC-EP) end to hand over their weapons after a 53 years old internal war. The guerrilla are now preparing its 7.000 fighters to return to civil life. Who are they? What they want to do in the future? Until recently, very little was know about them, except a populary imagery of the guerrillero.
Today, they go away from their confidential refuge into the jungle, until now under the protection of its green shadows. They let behind them their clandestine life to appear in the broad daylight. 
The series was made between September 2016 and February 2017 into several FARC camps. It?s an intent to figure this transition from the shadows to the light, inspiring by the tenebrism style of the painter Caravaggio. It lets to appear their singularity after years in the insurgent army, yet under a stringent military discipline.
