Krysthel, from the series Nosotras

By Silvana Trevale

Venezuela has greater oil reserves than Saudi Arabia, but my country has one of the fastest shrinking economies in the world. Food and medicines are in short supply while the murder rate soars. Which has lead to the currently escalating protests. We Venezuelans regard Venezuela as a woman. But, I am struck by the unrecognized role women play in Venezuela. This series of portraits then looks towards the women of Venezuela, celebrating the collective, modest but real-life heroes of my homeland.
