sudarios

Exhibit portrays the real cost of unrelenting violence

"Sudarios" by Erika Diettes is a collection of portraits of women reliving "the moment that divided her life in two," alive but not living with grief from witnessing family embers who were victims of violence during unrest in Colombia.

The exhibition of 20 intimate portraits of women reliving a tragic period of their lives is moving — both figuratively and literally.

The photographs by Colombian artist Erika Diettes in "Sudarios" are of women who were forced to witness the torture and murder of their loved ones during Colombia's 50 years of civil conflict. The display is carefully designed to make the portraits come alive.
