"That's when I came to learn more about Graciela Iturbide, Tina Modotti, Lola Alvarez Bravo…that kicked in this interest or appetite in what else is going on in other places…"
Verónica Sanchis Bencomo founded Foto-Féminas as a way to promote the work being done by female photographers working in Latin America and the Caribbean. It was while growing up in Venezuela and witnessing political turmoil that Verónica became acutely aware that the media could be a powerful tool for giving voice to those with little power or means to be heard. It was then through her photographic work with an NGO in Chile that cared for young burn victims, that Verónica became more interested in learning about female photographers who worked in Latin America.
