To the current issue

I find this picture tough, because it represents a part of Venezuelan society that venerates guns. They are a normal part of everyday life.
Ana María Arévalo

A tattoo of a gun represents power and authority, just as much as protection.”

Ambassador Ana Maria Arevalo

In her ‘Dias Eternos’ long-term project, recently published in LFI 3/2019, the Venezuelan photographer Ana María Arévalo looks into conditions in centers of detention in her homeland. She focuses primarily on the fates of imprisoned women. It is the tattoo in this picture that draws the attention: the photographer explains in the LFI Blog the story behind it.
