I am a Venezuelan freelance photographer based in Miami, USA.
I am a person of great curiosity and sensitivity to everyday stories. As a woman, a mother, and a Venezuelan who lived in a situation of significant deterioration in recent years in Venezuela, I am interested in social issues.
I studied Interior Design, and I practiced it for years, but I have always been close to photography. I come from a family of photographers, mainly dedicated to portraiture, so photographic expression is something familiar to me.
For more than ten years, I have been dedicated to documentary photography, and for the last nine years, I have been documenting my family's life, practically every day.
For years I had my eyes on photojournalism, but with no regrets, I devoted myself entirely to raising my daughter during her early years. It wasn't until early 2019 that I had the opportunity to go out and document other people's stories and work on spot news as well. Thinking back on it, I think it was at that point that I was bold enough to accept that this is what I want to do and went out and did it.
I am always eager to learn and grow so that I can continue to be a witness to what is going on around us. Photography, which I consider a powerful language, is a magical tool to tell stories and to leave a record. I am also interested in video and every day I explore more into it. And with writing, I enjoy telling the story around my photos and even around my daily life.
Since February 2019, I have been working as a contributing photojournalist for Bloomberg, Agence France-Presse (AFP), Getty Images, Reuters, Agence Anadolu, BBC Mundo, among others.
