About Yadira

I am an accountant by profession, but my passion for photography has led her to train in the Roberto Mata Taller de Fortografia (Roberto Mata Photography Workshop). My documentary-style work focuses on the social problems of her country. I had worked on the crisis experienced by the elderly in Venezuela, the rudeness of childbirth in very low socio-economic contexts, the health system and education in times of pandemic in vulnerable areas. I am a documentary and journalist photographer born in Venezuela based in Miami, I have develop long term visual projects about Venezuela ́s crisis, focused on collaborative ways to speak about the human condition under hostile contexts. I am part of the exhibitions of Women Street Photographer. As a Freelance Photographer I have collaborated for Prodavinci, Cinco 8, The New Humanitarian, Open Democracy, and AFP (Agence France-Press) I was awarded second place in the first biennial of documentary photography in honor of Venezuelan photographer Wil Riera with her work "Vejez Abandonada". I recently exhibited one of her photographs at ICP in New York.

El panorama empeora cuando la pandemia obliga a cerrar las escuelas en un país con un sistema educativo debilitado por la emergencia humanitaria compleja.

    Crisis hospitalaria

  • Trieste Photo Days Exhibition, Italy, 2020

    • Editorial Photographer / Photojournalist

    I took this photo in Petare Venezuela, one of the biggest and populated slum of Latin America, on May 13th. Currently Venezuela faces the most intense crisis of our history that affects all Venezuelan people, including me. At home we don´t have access to clean water. Some people on vulnerable places don´t have any kind of protection against the coronavirus and the risk of contagion is high. We need the world to know about our situation. In this photograph a young man is walking, a teenage girl is breastfeeding her daughter, a woman is sitting on a concrete wall, two people are watching what is happening . All of them are waiting for the tanker truck to collect water to their houses, some people are not wearing a mask. Our situation is very hard, to babies it is even worse, we don´t have any hope. What concerns me the most in our current moment is that in some vulnerable places in Venezuela, people don´t have access to clean water in this coronavirus context where the most important thing is to wash our hands quite regularly. Our people face a high risk of contagion.
