Fabiola Ferrero


Fabiola Ferrero (b. 1991) is a journalist and photographer born in Caracas, Venezuela. 

Using her background as a reporter, Ferrero develops long-term visual projects about South America, and especially Venezuela's crisis. Her personal work is the result of how her childhood memories contrast with the current situation in Venezuela. 

Interested in bringing opportunities to other newcomer photographers in the region, Fabiola founded Semillero Migrante, a photography mentorship program around migration. 

Among her recognitions are the Inge Morath Award, Carmignac Photojournalism Award, 6Mois Photojournalism Award and the Getty Images Editorial Grant. She was a Magnum Foundation Fellow for the Social Justice Program in 2018 and a finalist for the Alexia Grant, Eugene Smith Memorial Fund and the Leica Oskar Barnack Newcomer Award.

As well as developing independent investigations in Latin America, her work has been featured in TIME, The New York Times, National Geographic, M Magazine, Le Monde, and others.
