A few weeks ahead of the 2019 Joop Swart Masterclass, World Press Photo is introducing this year’s participants in a series of articles. Click here to read the story behind VII Mentor Program photographer Fabiola Ferrero’s project.
The Bronx Documentary Center’s (BDC) 2nd Annual Latin American Foto Festival, July 11 – 21, 2019, brings award-winning photographers from throughout the Caribbean and Latin America to exhibit their photographs, create installations and hold workshops and panel discussions.
Exhibiting photographers Fabiola Ferrero and Fred Ramos, both of the VII Mentor Program, will also discuss the link between violence and migration in Latin America in a panel discussion on Friday, July 19 at 7 PM.
VII Mentor Program photographer Fabiola Ferrero has been named a 2018 Magnum Foundation Photography and Social Justice Fellow.
The Photography and Social Justice program offers specialized training and space for experimentation with new approaches to socially engaged documentary practice. Fabiola Ferrero writes, “artists belong to every space of society, and not only galleries and museums.”
