Ningún amor cabe en un cuerpo solamente, aunque abarquen sus venas el tamaño del mundo; siempre un deseo se queda fuera, otro solloza pero falta. Lo sabe el mar en su lamento solitario y la tierra que busca los restos de su estatua; no basta un solo cuerpo para albergar sus noches, quedan estrellas fuera de la sangre. Ningún amor cabe en un cuerpo solamente, aunque el alma se aparte y ceda espacio y el tiempo nos entregue la hora que retiene. Dos manos no nos bastan para alcanzar la sombra; dos ojos ven apenas pocas nubes pero no saben dónde van, de dónde vienen, qué país musical las une y las dispersa. Ningún amor, ni el más huidizo, el más fugaz, nace en un cuerpo que está solo; ninguno cabe en el tamaño de su muerte. Eugenio Montejo. #Venezuela #2015 #archive

When this news became public a month ago, I was in no mood for promotion: all of my colleagues in Venezuela and abroad were looking for medicines for an amazing photographer who was once my dearest friend, who inspired me and worked with me during my first 2 years as a photographer. We met when I didn’t even have a proper camera and I was doing assignments with my phone. He guided me kindly, taught me through his dedication and example, and motivated me in a way that I know he’s not aware of. He was fighting for his life at a clinic in a country with 85% medicine shortage. Another dear friend of mine was mourning her father, who was murdered in Caracas after he resisted robbery. He was a prominent public figure, and she was devastated, as expected. The thought of her, who is just such a glowing person, being reached by that obnoxious criminal statistic that my country is famous for, was painful. This month away from Venezuela, as busy as it was working with Magnum Foundation, had also some time of silence for me to digest a little the context in which we’re in. I am, of course, proud to share this with you. But I am also reminded, once again, how temporary everything is: the bad and the good. And how life is just all of that, at the exact same time. So as I allowed myself to cry when I felt overwhelmed by the shadows, I am now also embracing this new opportunity and finally sharing it to the people that have been with me during this path of learning. I am so grateful to have met you guys @irohitsaha @ozgeseb @thandiwemsebenzi @billyhckwok @flowalksfree @bahaa_elias87 @thisislagos234. And the whole team of @magnumfoundation For such a hectic but amazing month in New York. I bring back home new ways to look at photography, different approaches, formats and intentions. I bring back the idea that communities have many ways to be part of our projects and that us, as photojournalists, documentary photographers, artists or however you want to be called, can actually create changes in our spaces.

“Amor es justicia, amor es bondad, amor es entrega. Amor es lucha. Amor es empatía: mirarse a los ojos y saber que hay confianza. El amor te genera capacidad de asombro. De esperanza. Pero también hay desilusión. También puede ser doloroso. Es como un yin yang. El amor es ir aprendiendo y caminando. Comunicar siempre lo que sientes. Es tener paciencia. Es conocerte a ti mismo y reconocerte en el otro” Mientras te edito, te oigo,te entiendo. @cinthyasantosb #Migration #Deportation #US #NewYork @magnumfoundation
