We invite you to check out the stirring images Oscar posted on the feed this week and follow along as he continues the take-over through the weekend.
From Oscar via Instagram:
Good morning everybody! My name is Oscar B. Castillo from Caracas-Venezuela usually posting from @eltestigo44. I will be hosting the New Yorker Photo [Instagram] for this week. Please follow me as I move around this complicated and fascinating city where I’m actually working on my project OUR WAR - OUR PAIN about violence in Venezuela and its causes and consequences, I’m a #MagnumFoundation grantee with the help of #MagnumEF. I hope to bring you some better understanding on our social and political situation at the time that I try to find some light at the end of the tunnel. Some pain and darkness and some caribbean sun and fun. Thank you very much. Have a great week.
