Apart from teaching, Lexi is focused on photographing life in Venezuela - specifically interested in understanding how people are looking to create and define an identity, a future, within the framework of ‘crisis.’
Lexi is fluent in both Spanish and English + available for assignments globally (she writes on occasion, too.)
She is a member of the Women Photograph Caracas chapter.
