Les presento BANDERA del disco RÍO de Aterciopelados. Una aclaración: el indigena que camina se llama Maya y es un hombrecito, para los que piensan que porque lleva faldita es una niña : ) GOZO PODEROSO:
Maya, an immigrant begins a trip throughout the world. In this trip, many barriers will interfere in his way. However his will and determination will let him pass through this obstacles and boarders to finally claim the place that belongs to him, like to any human being of this world.
Aquí está uno de mis color script favoritos. Esto sucede en el intermedio 2 de la canción cuando Andrea canta:
¿Quién me limita
este mi planeta
si soy tercermundista
y empacó mis maletas?
This is the color test for the second part of the video. We chose a palette that was very colorful but controlled at the same time. For this sequence in particular the difficulty was the change on the illumination and the color transition, before and after the torch got into the scene.
This was the color script I did for the different “Mayas” during his journey. At the beginning I change Maya’s color dress like a hundred of times until I get with the green. After that, the challenge was to adjust the green for each of the transformations that happens to Maya during his travel.
A friend of mine Sergio Salgado, a while ago is working in a project of founding a library in Cazucá. One of the rough parts of Bogotá and where all kids have to travel hundred of kilometers to go to school. The picture was during a workshop we were doing with the kids.

This photo is part of a serie I’ve been working some years ago during my travels. I love taking pictures of people, but most of kids, because they are so playful and spontaneous, like few grown-ups can’t be. This one, was taken during a trip for Providence, in San Andrés, Colombia. We were walking to “Agua Dulce” (Sweet Water Beach) and I saw them playing on the street. It was a colorful day!
3:00 am. Day 25. Carnivakl of Rio. Exhausted! I can say for instances, that nobody celebrated with so much energy and passion like brazilian people. No even, colombian people. Even though, we have more that one hundred carnivals and festivals through whole the year. Me with a couple of friends were going to the supermarket to bought some food and these kids were playing with their masks and inside of the shopping cars.
Esta foto también es en Balsillas, en la biblioteca a la que niños como ellos van todas las tardes después de clases. En el lugar leen cuentos, tocan y hacen música, rapean, cantan y simplemente, la gozan.
A couple of years ago, I went to San Bernardo del Viento Islands ( Saint Bernardo of the Wind) for two reasons. One, for a yoga training and second, to write an article about a man from Medellin (Colombia) who had created the first library in Balsillas, a town to 40 minutes of San Bernardo Island. The library opened daily. After school, al the kids went there to read books and watch movies in a big tv that someone has donated. They learnt to play music with other young people from the Island too.
