Fabiola Ferrero is a freelance writer and photographer based between Venezuela and Colombia. Her work is the result of growing up in one of the most dangerous cities in the world: Caracas, Venezuela, where witnessing and experiencing violence and injustice became the starting point of a life of wondering and searching for answers. Journalism and art are her tools to understand, and make others understand, the world we live in. As a photographer and writer, her interest  is to explore human behavior in hostile contexts. She speaks Spanish, English and some French and Italian.
