Resistencia: Portraits of Colombia. A photographic journey through the Colombian conflict and the struggle for social justice.

In 2006 and again in 2007 photographer Sam Green visited Colombia with 'Justice for Colombia'. He had the opportunity to meet with and photograph some of the most threatened people in Colombia. He was also able to visit and photograph regions that are normally almost impossible for foreigners to enter. Justice for Colombia also arranged for Sam to take his camera into one of Colombia's notorious prisons where he was able to photograph political prisoners – people jailed for their opposition to the Colombian regime.
