In the context of the exhibition dedicated to female photojournalists, Géopolis will invite the Venezuelan journalist and photographer Fabiola Ferrero to talk about her work and the current situation in the country.

Ferrero was born in Caracas in 1991. She currently lives between Venezuela and Colombia. Her documentary “Venezuela, blurred in despair” is a long-term investigation of the psychological consequences of Venezuela’s crisis on its people. Recent studies point to a growing number of psychological disorders, medicine shortage and a growing murder rate. The country is collectively in a state of depression due to relentless exposure to hostile situations. This colourful Caribbean nation now appears somber as society floats weightless with uncertainty for the future.

Ferrero will talk about her work and about her experiences as a photojournalist, as well about the current situation in Venezuela.

19:00 – Discussion with Fabiola Ferrero
20:30 – Drink and visit of the exhibition
