That happend with Pablo Escobars Comuna 13 distric until today [Photography]

in photography •  last year

It's been a few years since there were bloody fights and gunfire in the Comuna 13. It was one of the most dangerous neighborhoods in Medellin where the cartel of Pablo Escobar was located.

Today the Comuna 13 is an artists' district. The graffitis on the walls of the houses still tell the stories of that time.

I was on the road with my camera in the neighbourhood and took some great graffiti shots.

Here are my photos, that's what it looks like today.

Es ist einige Jahre her, da herrschten in der Comuna 13 noch blutige Kämpfe und Schießerein. Es gal als eines der gefährlichsten Viertel in ganz Medellin, wo sich das Kartell von Pablo Escobar aufhielt.

Heute ist die Comuna 13 ein Künstlerviertel. Die Graffitis an den Häuserwänden erzählen noch die Geschichten von damals.

Ich war mit meiner Kamera im Viertel unterwegs und habe einige tolle Graffitis fotografiert.

Hier meine Fotos, so sieht es heute dort aus.

yeah that's pretty awesome! :)

It's rather rare that people are into graffiti lately, it's being widely banned by the government to protect property owner. You should really visit Australia, Melbourne if you're really into it.

Check me out perhaps @explorernations ? I am food and travel blogger

I agree. Graffitis could be so nice. And if you even know the story to the graffiti it's much better. I will have a look on your account.

I'm photographer as well and I love the way you capture the street vibes. Great job man :)

·

thanks, that's so good to hear that by another photographer. I will have a look what you do.

My favorite is the elephant, but all are amazing! Thank you for sharing! I am also a traveler, so I will be definitely following you! Have a wonderful time @jssdigital! Keep traveling!

·

Thank you @alexandraioana26 .. nice to hear. I will definitly show more awesome photography from my travels.

Really cool shots. My favorite grafitti was the one with two guys and a parrot on the shoulder.

·

Thanks, @bescouted !! Yes, the one with the two guys is a good one. I had a bit the issue that the car was in front. But I think that makes the graffiti even more interesting with the surrounding.
