Narcos & Homes is a photobook showing a project by photographer Yamile Calderón named “Domestic at large”. From Yamile Calderón’s website:
This project is very connected to Calderon’s life experience of growing up in Colombia during the blossom years of narcotraffic dealing, with the imaginary and aesthetics values that came with it in Colombian society. This was her starting point to work with the project “Domestic at Large”, in which she approaches the drug trafficking problem from a domestic perspective. She took pictures of the properties of mafia bosses in Colombia that have been confiscated by the government. These images reveal ambivalence between the decadent, luxuriance in contrast with the emptiness of the houses. At the same time there is a confrontation between the way media presents this phenomena and how these photographs approach the everyday life of these people with their families, telling stories through the traces of people.
