Pride and prejudice: A man named Ritze Silva lives in the Caracas barrios with his wife and three daughters. When Bendiksen visited them, Silva grew very animated talking about his family and his plans to paint his home. "Some people talk about their problems," the photojournalist recalls. "Some people talk about their hopes and ambitions. It's something journalists and photographers usually miss -- we overfocus on the negative. We depict an existence you can't even relate to. But there's a lot of ambition in the slums."
