Lexi Parra is a Venezuelan-American visual storyteller and community educator based in Caracas, Venezuela. She graduated from Bard College in May 2018 with a joint degree in Photography and Human Rights. Following graduation, she moved to her family’s home country of Venezuela to bring photography education to vulnerable youth. With the 2018 Davis Peace prize, she founded an ongoing workshop program called Project MiRA (Look).
Since moving to Venezuela, Lexi has worked with local artists, activists and creative agencies. Through her freelance experiences, she has been able to understand her country more: the more she understood, the more questions arose. She now is focusing on photographing underground subcultures, looking to understand how people - specifically young adults - are looking to create and define an identity, a future, within the framework of ‘crisis.’
She is a member of the Women Photograph Caracas chapter, as well as an artist in residence at the Tiuna el Fuerte Cultural Park.
