#VIIMentorProgram photographer @fabiolaferrero recently photographed Juan Guaidó for the cover of @lemondefr.

In an interview with Le Monde, Juan Guaidó explains his positions: "Debating Venezuela in terms of right and left is, in my opinion, wrong. The sad reality of the country has been only looting and corruption. The word "pueblo" has been misused to steal the resources of our territory. There is no ideology in there. The reality of the problems of the moment touches on the fundamental values ​​of humanity and democracy."

@Dannywilcoxfrazier and @nicholesobecki's "Rising Fast: Africa’s Changing Urban Spaces" September 2019 workshop is now open for enrollment. Rising Fast explores the changing realities of Nairobi, Kenya, one of the world’s fastest-growing urban spaces. Contrary to reductive stereotypes of Africa, Kenya is riding a strong economy, a youth-driven cultural awakening and a dynamic tech scene coined the “Silicon Savannah.” Huge challenges remain however: widespread poverty, poor infrastructure, human rights abuses, and political tumult. Does the “Africa Rising” narrative holds up, and how are people’s lives being impacted on the ground?

Gordwin Odhiambo's series uses portraiture to explore the development of Sheng, a slang developed and used by Nairobi's youth and one of the world's most quickly changing languages. Here in "Keja (Crib)" Futwax, also known as Mr. Kibera, poses in his home in Nairobi's Kibera community.

Photo by @stefano_de_luigi / @VIIPhoto. A giraffe lies dead, killed by drought in Wajir, North Eastern province, Kenya on Oct. 9, 2009. Livestock and crops are dying and people are getting weaker every day due to a devastating drought. The lack of resources in Kenya and in neighboring countries is sparking intertribal conflicts as communities fight for limited grazing land and water. The spread of weapons is turning those conflicts bloody.

How should a story be structured and what process should one use when selecting and editing images? What is it that distinguishes a reporter from an author? Stefano De Luigi will answer these questions and more during the two sessions of his #VIITutorProgram workshop "A True Author" at @officinefotografiche_milano.

Photo by @nicholesobecki / @viiphoto | People gather to celebrate Timkat, the Ethiopian Orthodox Church's celebration of Jesus Christ's baptism, in Hawassa, Ethiopia. I came across this scene unexpectedly on the walk to my hotel after a long day on another story. I was drawn in by the prayers, timeless and haunting when close to the priests, and static-filled and staccato when heard from the battered speakers circling the park. It felt like a gift to be there, unhurried, aware, and surrounded by community, and the light of hundreds of small, burning flames. #timkat #celebration #ethiopia #nicholesobecki
