Images of Comandante, reflected in photography
Venezuelan Life Journey of Comandante Hugo Chávez photographic exhibition hosted by Belarusian National Library’s Rakurs Gallery
The exhibition is one in a series of events organised by the Venezuelan diplomatic mission to Minsk, to mark the 61st anniversary of Comandante Hugo Chávez’s birth. The Embassy stresses that the strategic partnership between Venezuela and Belarus, initiated during the presidency of Hugo Chávez, remains a foreign policy priority for both countries.
The exhibition aims to reflect key moments from Hugo Chávez’s life. “Many of the photographs on display have never been shown before. Visitors will have the chance to see how, from a modest boyhood, and faithful to the ideals of justice and love for his Homeland, he became a leader of the Bolivarian Revolution. He is a stronghold for Latin American nations and an inspiring example for nations worldwide,” notes the diplomatic mission.
Hugo Chávez suffered defeats and misfortunes but they enabled him to reinforce his moral courage and continue his struggle towards the ideals of freedom, equality and social justice. “Faith in his Homeland, firm will and determination predetermined his heading of revolutionary change in Venezuela. This inspired other nations to believe in the possibility of constructing a better world,” the Embassy underlines.
