Venezuela, once the envy of Latin America, is disintegrating before our eyes. The Bolivar, the nation's currency, has the value of confetti, power blackouts are common across the country, food and everyday staples are gone, hospitals are failing...it is a nation in the throes of collapse. The Venezuelan diaspora has reached over 3 million as a steady stream of people flee their homes, their country. The country now lurches from one crisis to the next and for the beleaguered Venezuelans, there is no end in sight. These are photographs from the first of an ongoing series of trips I will be taking to the country in 2019.
