The last border

The violence of silence


The war over, the Saddam regime crumbled, America is now in charge of Iraq.


War is the maximum orgy of despair, blood and sorrow that the human being is capable of inflicting on his fellowmen. Faced with the impunity of silence, the memory of what happened is the greatest expression of rebellion against violence and oblivion.

The Fund

Alvaro is establishing The Fund to create bodies of photographic work on major contemporary issues to break the barriers of silence and resurrect unspoken plural memories as a path to start a dialogue that can build lasting peace through reconciliation and forgiveness. The Fund’s first self-funded initiative is “Macondo, Memories of the Columbian Conflict: a dialogue to unify Colombia towards lasting peace”.
