"Colombina was my first equine love. Since I was three years old, my dad trusted this beautiful chestnut mare to teach me to be one with a horse.
She was too tall to be a pure Colombian horse. Her legs missed the fine features of the Paso Fino horse, and her neck was more delicate than their robust one, yet she was the most majestic and calm animal I’ve ever encountered. 
I felt as safe in her curved and broad back, as I do today standing on my own two feet. It’s like she knew she was carrying someone’s most precious cargo, so she was always steady, always sensible. I have never been able to forget her, and this is why “Colombina” is a recurring figure in all my work."

Carolina Echeverri (b. 1980) is a Colombian artist living in Copenhagen since 2011, working with photography and sculpture. There is a very tactile, intimate quality to her documentation of flora and fauna.  
Her work has been exhibited at Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen Photo Festival, Hans Alf Gallery, Les Rencontres d’Arles and NW Gallery. She has been highlighted in GUP Magazine's Fresh Eyes as one of the best emerging photographers in Europe, and was shortlisted for the Athens Photo Festival this year. In 2021, the Latin America Photography Foundation and Enfoque Visual Magazine pointed to her as one of 30 recommended new Latin American photographers.
