Colombia – Old Men

The faces of older men are always fascinating, they always reveal plenty of life experience, along with stories to share.

On a recent trip to Colombia, we got to spend time with a number of families, unfortunately a lot of the dads weren’t around, either they had moved to find work or had been killed in the drugs war.  However a number of the families had   older men and I had the pleasure of capturing their portraits.

Here are my favourites.
