Esteffany Bravo’s photography focuses on indigenous people. Her work, that often takes her to the field in the Ecuadorian highland and Amazon region, can be found in European news outlets such as Spanish newspaper El País. Bravo has rapidly risen as one of the photographers covering indigenous movements in depth, getting involved with the communities she features, specially with Abya Yala.
Abya Yala, which in the Guna language means “land in its full maturity”, is the name used by Native American Guna people that inhabit near the Darién Gap (today North West Colombia and South East Panama) to refer to their section of the American continent before Columbus arrival.
Current Ecuadorian uprisings along with the past October 12th, brought the artist to this new capture.
