SAVE THE DATE - MAY 15TH at 6PM EST- LIFE FROM THE BRONX DOCUMENTARY CENTER
Join journalist Alice Driver as she speaks with 10 members of the photojournalist collective COVID LATAM about the book Red Flag, winner of the 2021 FotoEvidence Book Award with World Press Photo.
The event is organized in partnership with the Bronx Documentary Center.
In Latin America, coronavirus has laid bare extreme inequality in the region, and one symbol of that inequality is the red flag in Colombia. Impoverished Colombians hang a piece of red fabric outside their homes when they no longer have any food – it is a call for help and a reminder that many people live off what they earn from one day to the next and have no safety net. While some families can quarantine safely, others risk hunger and eviction if they stop working even for a day. Those who hang the red flag outside their homes depend on the generosity of others for survival.
Featuring photographers: Sebastian Gil Miranda, Fabiola Ferrero, Matilde Campodonico , Daniele Volpe, Gloriana Ximendaz, Ana Carolina Fernandez, Pablo Piovano, Rafael Vilela, Sara Wayra, Fred Ramo of the COVID LatAm collective.
Please note: This event is free and will be in both Spanish and English. RSVP at the Bronx Documentary Center website.
The book Red Flag is available at FotoEvidence web site.
