is a Chilean photojournalist who has dedicated his work to tracing the lives of communities who depend, build, and are torn apart by the resources in their surroundings. From the social, cultural and political impact of drug trafficking in Colombia to the international exploitation of minerals in the Congo, Villalon manages to extract a kernel of truth that hits a strong, harsh note at the back of our throats and refuses to go away. This particular series is composed of striking images of the villages that depend on the cultivation of the coca plant, and the communities that are devastated by its product, in the form of cocaine.

Capozzi veers away from the conventional glossiness of fashion photography, employing the female body to create startling, unusual scenes - odd glimpses of a story that linger provocatively on the tongue. A teenage dream.
