When Misha Vallejo decided to document life in a small town on the border of Ecuador and Colombia, his family and friends called him crazy. They will be mugged, kidnapped or murdered! They warned him. Puerto Nuevo, located in a remote area on the banks of the San Miguel River, was founded in 2001 by displaced people fleeing the armed conflict in Colombia. Its residents, about five hundred today, were quickly forgotten by both governments, leaving families with very limited access to medical care or any other social service. In August and September 2014, Vallejo left his comfort zone and spent those months in Puerto Nuevo, living with Don Juan Escobar, the town's president, and his family. The photographic results of that visit were published last year as a vibrant photobook entitled Al Otro Lado in translation from Spanish On the Other Side. Al Otro Lado is a paperback book with an open spine. His dust jacket represents a black pistol on a tablecloth with flowers. Made in China appears prominently on the weapon, hinting that it is a toy, and this juxtaposition of flowers and a firearm, colors and darkness, sets the metaphorical sense of a boundary, creating a mood on one side and the other. el otro.
