Silvana Trevale

Silvana is a Photographer born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela. Her portrait based work is a fusion between documentary and fashion, where she explores her Latin American roots within both spectrums. The escalating crisis in her home country of Venezuela has motivated her to produce Trevale’s ongoing recent piece “Venezuelan Youth”. Which was has been widely exhibited, notably at her solo show at ThePrintSpace in London and at Vogue Italia’s Photo Vogue Festival this year.

Through the progress in her MA, she has taken a closer look at the women of her family. As her work carries a nostalgic density towards her home and family, she returned to her childhoods memories and recent events. By collaborating with her grandmother Rosa and mother Maria, she explores the past of her great grandmother Cayetana. With the intention to celebrate her bravery as an indigenous woman and her roots. By observing the Latin essence the women of her life grew up with.
