Training ground: Maria Varela captures a life of activism in ‘Time to Get Ready: fotografía social’ at The Fralin


Social justice activist Maria Varela’s “Time to Get Ready: fotografía social” is at The Fralin Museum of Art through January 5. Varela’s backstory is essential to understanding and appreciating her work, and her photography is a means to an end, a way of creating images of resistance for the resisters. © Maria Varela.
