The Gazes of Venezuelan Children


Photo Feature by Caridad

HAVANA TIMES — These photos are part of one of those projects I never seem to finish – not because I don’t want to, but because I always find a new gaze to capture and refuse to declare my work concluded.

Taking pictures of kids is one of the most entertaining and hardest things I have done. Venezuelan children are like all children, but the mischievousness and vivacity I find in their eyes is what I enjoy most about taking photos of them.

Caridad: If I had the chance to choose what my next life would be like, I’d like to be water. If I had the chance to eliminate a worst aspect of the world I would erase fear. Of all the human feelings I most like I prefer friendship. I was born in the year of the first Congress of the Cuban Communist Party, the day that Gay Pride is celebrated around the world. I no longer live on the east side of Havana; I’m trying to make a go of it in Caracas, and I continue to defend my right to do what I want and not what society expects of me.

    Griffin, whilst I share your opposition to the Maduro government your comment is off the mark. In fact these images are very beautiful and show what lovely people live in Venezuela, Their future should be our concern.

    With Cuban security forces helping the Maduro regime violently repress student protests in Venezuela, HT decides to run pretty pictures of adorable Venezuelan children… please ignore the olive green men behind the curtain.

    Nicely payed.
