Fabiola Ferrero | I Can't Hear the Birds

Country of origin: Venezuela
Project location: Venezuela
Program: Photography and Social Justice
Year: 2018

Venezuela is not a country anymore, but rather a state of mind. My project, I Can’t Hear the Birds, is a collective psychological portrait of current day Venezuela, where the increasing challenges of daily life have created debilitating trauma. Mixing diaries of people who have fled with their old family albums and mementos of what they have left behind, I aim to create an emotional journey of the grief induced by the loss of the country we once knew.
