Medellin by Corine Vermeulen
Over the past decade, the city of Medellin has undergone a profound transformation. Thanks to highly innovative urban planning initiatives, Medellin is shedding its notorious image as one of the world’s most dangerous cities, instead becoming a cultural center and tourist friendly destination where international visitors come to study the miracle of its urban renewal. Yet most of Medellin and its people remain haunted by the country’s cycles of drug-fueled economics, conflict, and poverty.
This series of photographs presents vistas of Medellin’s cityscapes and portraits of its citizens, alongside their thoughts on the city, their country, and its place in a globalized world.
