In 2017, photographer Ana Maria Arevalo Gosen began to document the lives of women in pre-trial detention centers in her country of Venezuela. A daily life made of deprivation, violence, humiliations. She understood little by little that the condition of incarcerated women is a problem at the scale of the whole region. So in 2021, Arevalo Gosen continued her work in El Salvador and she plans to pursue it throughout Latin America. For this project, titled Dias Eternos, she won the Lucas Dolega Award in 2020 and, in 2021, the Camille Lepage Award and the Leica Oskar Barnack Award.
