These images appeared the other night on a wall on Carrera 3 in La Candelaria. A secret message? A curious advocacy for indigenous rights?
The English is imperfect enough to suggest this was the work of a mediocre Colombian high school student, or an unsuccesful poet.
|Who photographed me? Do I know that |
I'm on a wall in Bogotá?
Is this exploitation of indigenous people, who surely have no idea that their photos are on a wall in Bogotá? A candid camera exercise? A waste of paper? The website says that 20% of photo sales go to a village in Laos. What about an educated native English speaker impersonating a Colombian learning English?
|Passers-by weren't paying much attention.|
