Venezuela in chaos

Venezuela in chaos

Juan Toro


In 2014, the streets of Venezuela became a stage for the battle between students and the national guard. The images quickly spread on social media. The world could experience the first deaths in real time. Human rights organisations spoke of 850 people injured, 157 cases of abuse and torture, 3127 random arrests, and 41 deaths. Toro sums this up with images of objects left behind on the battle scene, an inventory of violence. These are images that were made in the past, but stand just as much for the present.
