  • This book tries to solve a historical-cultural problem based on forgetting. With this project I seek to reflect the activities, characteristics and interests of a population, going through and doing an inventory of their daily life. It is a portrait of diversity, of beliefs, of their everyday life... It is the Bogotá culture through elements that characterize it. It aims to show to the world how things look like there. We want to take care of the present, considering it as the base that sustains what we are today and what we will be in the future. I want to honour the city that opened its doors to me.​​​​
