FABIOLA FERRERO, CARACAS, VENEZUELA
Fabiola Ferrero is a Venezualan photographer based in Caracas. For My Mark: My City, Fabiola visited Maracaibo, Zulia where she hosted an artist workshop with environmental expert Marcelo Monnot. Their aim was to engage local children with the issue of water pollution in the lake next to their homes (which is so heavily polluted that local residents find crude oil in the water they use for showers). The children turned the oil into an artistic tool, using it as a medium to create pieces of art about their hopes for the future. The participants then discussed ideas for what they might do collectively to prevent further pollution.
