Award-winning photography by Heidi Harf

15 years ago, my husband suggested we spend 6 months in his home town of Cali, Colombia. 15 years later, three kids and one dog, I am still here. I am fortunate enough to spend my time between Colombia and New York. In addition to photographing families, including my own, I am committed to documenting humanitarian efforts for not for profit foundations in Colombia. Over the past few years, I have been working on several personal projects close to my heart here in Colombia as well as in Southampton, New York, my childhood home.

The Documentary Family Awards is an international competition in search of the insightful and meaningful ways that documentary photographers explore the interpretation of family.
