Venezuela is unlike any other country in dealing with COVID-19: we have corruption by state bodies, a failing economy making quarantine nearly impossible for many + world leaders adding insult to injury with sanctions that are having a very real effect on our population.
While I am lucky to stay home, Caracas is a context we get by in because of our people - our relationships, friendships. So the distance has an impact. Friends have been sharing stories - some of the little joys, others of the constant faint stress + even more of the explosions of violence/uncertainty that is happening in some of the more infamous barrios. These visual experiments are a way to deal with the distance, show these timely, important stories safely + authentically .... collaboration in quarantine.
