#Venezuela may have the largest known #oil reserves in the #world, but after years of government corruption and failed economic policy, it is now in a state of #crisis. Meridith's (@meridithkohut) photo essay "The Collapse of Venezuela," exhibited at #visapourlimage2017, documents #Venezuelans struggling to survive severe shortages of #food and #medicine, soaring violent crime, and government repression. Meredith shows people flocking to illegal #goldmines, others who have chosen to flee the #crisis, and those who have chosen to stay and fight, taking to the streets in massive anti-government protests that have left over 100 dead and more than 2,000 injured.
Family and friends mourn at a group funeral for four young men who were tortured and killed by members of the Venezuelan armed forces. Capaya November 29, 2016.

Have you seen the tribute to Stanley Greene at Théâtre de l'Archipel? It's a must see exhibition with images taken by the talented photographer throughout the world!
The exhibition blurb:
February 14, 1949, New York - May 19, 2017, Paris.
There are the fashion shots from the very beginning of his career, and his coverage of the rock and punk scene in California, before he changed paths and turned to photojournalism. Stanley Greene’s photographic opus is vast indeed.
Stanley crossed the world, in every direction, through war zones and devastation: Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Ukraine, and more, but there is little point in attempting to draw up the full list. Stanley felt an intense commitment to Chechnya, the reference being his outstanding book Open Wound: Chechnya 1994 to 2003, covering the many years he tirelessly devoted to the country and the people, speaking out against the damage done and the suffering inflicted on the civilian population.
War – one war and all wars – can be seen as recorded by Stanley Greene, determined to show the horror of the reality of war, transcending the specifics of any country, environment, or causes of conflict.
Yes, we have decided to display a selection of Stanley Greene’s photos – a purely subjective selection – as an opportunity to see and understand his work, to give visitors an idea of the man he was: a man of conviction, a man of doubt, a man of commitment, and a man with an incredible heart.

HAPPNENING NOW! Paris Match Panel Discussion: #Mosul, through the eyes of reporters

Moderated by Lucas Menget with: Flore Olive (@flore.olive), Alvaro Canovas, Frédéric Lafargue (@wildflowerfred), Régis Le Sommier & more.

Today, Sarah Caron will be signing her book "Le Pays des purs" at the Official Bookshop at #visapourlimage2017!
Pictured above is Sarah speaking about her work with Caroline Laurent-Simon (@carolinelaurentsimon) in the Palais des Congrès.

This photo essay features two long-term projects in #Albuquerque, #NewMexico, reporting on young people in prison, documenting #teenagers, their #family and confinement, their private life, love and personal #trauma, while also investigating aspects of the criminal justice system in the #UnitedStates, the country with the largest prison population in the world.
Over five years, we see the lives of two brothers, Vinny and David: Vinny was 13 when sentenced for stabbing his mother’s assailant, and David, 19, has been in and out of jail for drug dealing. Alysia is the subject of a photo-essay that began when she was 16, in jail, and continues through to the present, now 21, free, a wife and mother.
Pictured is an image from the report. The caption: Alysia (16) comforting her cellmate, Jasmine (15), who has heard that her grandfather has passed away. Bernalillo County Juvenile Detention Center, Albuquerque, New Mexico, #2012.
Don't miss Marco Longari's (@marcolongari) meeting with Caroline Laurent-Simon (@carolinelaurentsimon) at the Palais des Congrès at 10am!
They will be discussing his work "Crowds and Solitude in Africa" - Marco, Chief Photographer, Africa, for Agence France-Presse (@afpphoto), based in #Johannesburg, has been observing Africa for many years now. This, his chosen continent, is powerful yet plundered, suffering political uprisings and institutional crises. But it is impossible for Marco to accept a view of Africa as simply a land torn apart by conflict and corruption, for it is clearly undergoing radical change.
