Summary

Congratulations to Fabiola Ferrero, the laureate of the 12th edition Carmignac Photojournalism Award. 

PARIS, FRANCE- Venezuelan photographer Fabiola Ferrero has been awarded the 12th Carmignac Photojournalism Award by the Fondation Carmignac, which annually funds a 6-month photo report. Through photographs, videos, and archival images, Ferrero documented the disappearance of Venezuela's middle class. 

The democratic nation of Venezuela, which enjoyed prosperity in the 1960s and 1970s, is now struggling to recover from a political and economic crisis that has widened the inequality gap and destroyed the middle class. Ferrero compares Venezuela today with its opulent past.
 
Fabiola Ferrero's work will be exhibited at Réfectoire des Cordeliers in Paris from October 27, 2022 - November 22, 2022. The new work will be unveiled at Visa pour l'Image festival on September 1st at 9:30 PM (GMT).

About the Artist


Fabiola Ferrero is a journalist and photographer born in Caracas in 1991 and currently based in Colombia. Her personal work is the result of how her childhood memories contrast with nowadays Venezuela, her home country. Using her background in writing and investigative journalism, which she studied in Caracas (UCAB), she develops long term visual projects about South America, and especially Venezuela’s crisis. Her educational background in photography includes the Joop Swart Masterclass 2019 and the Eddie Adams Workshop. She was a jury member for the World Press Photo 2022 contest South American region and Magnum Foundation Fellow for the Social Justice Program in 2018.


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 IngeMorath Award, 6Mois Photojournalism Award and the Getty Images Editorial Grant. She was also a finalist for the Alexia Grant, Eugene Smith Memorial Fund and the Leica Oskar BarnackNewcomer Award. As well as developing independent investigations in South America, her work has been featured in TIME, The New York Times, National Geographic, MMagazine, LeMonde, and others. She is the 12th Carmignac Photojournalism Award laureate.
