Exist back against the wall. Men and women humiliated by life, devoured by drugs, are facing. They know they are being pursued by the police, hunted down by the paramilitaries, and, above all, hunted down by the agony that is coming. However, in the Cartucho, in the realm of elementary forces, something stronger shot; a powerful desire to be, to bring this trial to a conclusion. Faced with the objective, some of them smile, even though they know that it is absurd. One by one, aligned according to the photographer’s instructions, they burst out of the luminous background, exacerbating shapes and colours. By accepting the photographer’s invitation, the excluded show pride and lucidity that cannot be found anywhere else, except in despair.
