Fabiola Ferrero


“Fabiola has been documenting the crisis in her native Venezuela for years. She translates feelings of despair, loss of hope and sadness into a personal, visual testimony of a country in ruins. Her work goes beyond the realm of classic visual journalism and touches the visceral, the profound and the utterly engaging. Her perseverance and strong body of work make her one to watch.” - Laura Beltrán Villamizar, Colombia, photography editor, educator and founder of Native Agency
