Covid-19 in Latin America
Jul 25, 2020 | 6pm
Covid Latam is a collective project that chronicles the development of Covid-19 in Latin America through the point of view of eighteen photographers, 9 men and 9 women. Documenting the pandemic since the beginning of the outbreak in 13 countries (Colombia, Brasil, Perú, Bolivia, Ecuador, Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Venezuela, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Cuba and México) their work ranges from the intimacy of their homes to a more global vision with varied perspectives in different regions of the continent.
Please join photographers Eliana Aponte (Cuba), Sebastián Gil Miranda (Argentina), Alejandro Cegarra (Mexico) and Andrea Hernández Briceño (Venezuela) virtually as they discuss their goals as a collective and their experiences working during the pandemic.
You can join the webinar at the link below or you may view the Livestream which will be embedded on this page on the event date at 6PM.
