“Venezuela: Death's Burden”

Community activist Carolina Leal uses a cell phone to light up the work area for Roberto Molero as he prepares the body of Teresa Jimenez, 91, after she died of natural causes in her home in Maracaibo, Venezuela, Nov. 17, 2019. Molero embalms bodies with no training other than seeing it done during a decade that he work as a driver at a funeral home, while Leal assumes the role of funeral director in her poor and often violent Maracaibo neighborhood, hoping to rid families of unnecessary misery she's seen too many times.
