LatinPhoto.org: The Coronavirus in Latin America

LATINPHOTO.org ha estado apoyando a fotógrafos de América Latina durante 20 años. Nuestros miembros también se ven afectados por la pandemia de COVID-19. Muchos de ellos han perdido sus trabajos y ya no pueden moverse libremente como resultado de los bloqueos. Algunos miembros fotografiaron la pandemia con informes impresionantes, mientras que otros comenzaron a documentar su vida cotidiana. Con el proyecto del libro “El Coronavirus en América Latina” nos gustaría plasmar y honrar el trabajo de 15 de nuestros fotógrafos.

Desde la ONG Paul Venezuela aplaudimos esta iniciativa y felicitamos a nuestro embajador de buena voluntad en Venezuela, Gustavo Bauer, experto documentalista gráfico que ha sido seleccionado entre los 15 fotógrafos de la orgnización para plasmar su trabajo desarrollado durante los meses más duros de la pandemia, y nos unimos a la campaña emprendida por Latinphoto desde hoy.

LATINPHOTO.org has been supporting photographers across Latin America for 20 years. Our members are also affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. A lot of them have lost their jobs and can no longer move around freely as a result of the lockdowns. Some members photographed the pandemic with impressive reports, while others began to document their everyday lives. With the book project „The Coronavirus in Latin America” we would like to capture and honor the work of 15 of our photographers.

What is this project all about?

LATINPHOTO.org would like to support 15 photographers financially with the book “Corona in Latin America”.

What is the project goal and who is the project for?

Photographers in Latin America have been restricted in their work since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Why would you support this project?

With the photo book “Coronavirus in Latin America”, 15 photographers share their personal experiences during the pandemic.

How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded? 

If the financing is successful, the money will go to the payment of an image fee for 15 photographers and to one graphic artist to create a layout. 100% of the funds raised are paid to the authors.

Who are the people behind the project?

The Swiss photographer and founder of LATINPHOTO.org, Patrick Lüthy, and the coordinator Nilce Silvina Enrietti are behind the project. LATINPHOTO.org was founded 20 years ago and helps photographers in Latin America to offer their pictures to all interested parties on a joint platform. Patrick works on a voluntary basis for the project. The photographer and coordinator of the project, Nilce Silvina Enrietti, who lives in Argentina, receives a symbolic salary.
