Proposed by Circolo ACLI

February 2017, 6.300 combatants from the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) concluded a historic “final march” to reach 26 demobilization zones across the country. While the guerrillas have never known their country at peace and must now adapt to the challenges of life without weapons, British photojournalist Malcolm Linton was granted access, deep in a jungle in the department of Meta, to document the final days of one of the last remaining camps of this insurgency.

   The pictures that Linton presents are part of an in-depth photo project, titled “When The Ink Dries,” that was exhibited in Colombia in the recent years. A visual document of the fighters of the world's oldest Marxist guerrilla group as they prepare to return to civilian life.
