I have been working with individuals from my home country Venezuela, living in Ireland, who are stuck in what can only be described as “diplomatic limbo”. My work highlights a number of complexities in what should be a simple process of validating passports as a Venezualan national living, working or studying in another country. Through a series of Portraits and Interviews, I attempted to represent individual stories, struggles and experiences of Venezualan nationals living in Ireland – a country with surprisingly no official diplomatic relationship with my country. We Venezuelans have to carry on with the burden of the ones we leave behind in a country drowned by corruption and insecurity.
