It primarily focuses on two series:

‘Product of Colombia‘: 1.6 billion cups of coffee are drunk every day and Colombia is the third largest coffee producer the world. However, growers receive 7-10% of the retail price of coffee in supermarkets. Whilst this exploitation has reached public awareness there is now a growing sense of acceptance.

‘Las Negritas’: Portraits critiquing the racial stereotypes prevalent in Latin American mass media. Colombia has one of the highest levels of inequality in the world with a racialised class system that promotes informal separation of ethnicities which is further compounded by the reinforcement of prejudice through the Media.
