(p.89) Five The Photographer’s Body

University of Chicago Press

The other opposition that structures crime reporting in Venezuela is the polarized political distinction between the opposition and supporters of President Hugo Ch൥z (chavistas). Chapter five uses the death of the crime photographer Jorge Tortoza–murdered while covering the failed 2012 coup d'賡‎t against President Ch൥z–to illustrate this polarized dynamic and the precarious position occupied by ordinary beat journalists.

Keywords:   Polarization, populism, opposition, chavismo, Jorge Tortoza
