Photographer's Note

The inhabitants of Medellín must bear the stigma that associates them with the violence of the eighties. The key word in Medellin's renaissance is "territorial integration". The Medellín model has developed throughout successive and tuned municipal administrations. It is an ambitious social reform plan based primarily on urban redevelopment that includes a network of social inclusion, recovery of public space, comprehensive improvement of peripheral neighborhoods, urban renewal of downtown areas and expansion of the transportation system.
The photo shows the transformation of one of the communes where people used to live in slums.
