    University essay from Malmö universitet/Kultur och samhälle

    Keywords : Venezuela; humanitarian disaster; crisis; emergency; food; medicine; shortages; hunger; violence; quality of life; visual ethnography; photography; photo-elicitation; thick description.;

    Abstract : Venezuela faces today an unprecedented social and political collapse that extends beyond the critical economy and the violence; a deadly combination of severe shortages of food and medicine which makes it extraordinarily difficult for most Venezuelans to obtain essential medical care and the adequate minimal nutritional intake to ensure survival. The primary concern of this research is to answer the question of how do visual representations of Venezuela’s humanitarian disaster elucidate the deterioration of the quality of life of its younger citizens? This study aims to examine and better understand the effects and implications of Venezuela’s humanitarian crisis on its citizenry through the use of photography as a method of qualitative research, by paying particular attention to young Venezuelans and their role as social and political agents.
