Andrea Hernández Briceño
Born in Florida (United States) and raised in Caracas (Venezuela), Andrea Hernández is a photojournalist who develops her practice within socio-cultural exchanges between countries. After graduating in journalism from the Andrés Bello Catholic University, she worked for El Estímulo, a local Internet media.
Specializing in multimedia publications, she obtained a grant from the Gabriel García Márquez Foundation in 2017. In 2018, she completes the Documentary Practice and Visual Journalism Program at the International Center of Photography in New York. Within this framework, she is selected for the Lucie Foundation Emerging Artist grant, she participates in the XXXI Eddie Adams Workshop and is selected Woman Photographer of the class of 2018-2019.
As soon as she returns home in August 2018, she begins her personal "Homecoming" project. Her return to Caracas triggers feelings of anxiety about the social reality of her country. She considers the image her ideal tool for this situation: it helps her to communicate her encounters and experiences.
