Latest update : 2014-09-08

An urban legend and a criminal underworld: photojournalists Sebastián Liste and Jorge Silva both shine a light on the shadier corners of Venezuelan society.

Liste managed to get inside a prison controlled by its own inmates, while Silva documented the day-to-day life of people living in the abandoned "Tower of David" in Caracas. Their photos are now on display at the Visa pour l'Image international photojournalism festival in Perpignan, in the South of France. We caught up with them.
