In 2013 her piece Odalisque in Red Trousers became part of the collection of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Caracas. Her approach on photography has a social character, one of its aspects is concerned about highlighting problematics from its immediate context trough fiction and the other calls for photographic education as a tool of social change in their pedagogical projects within prisons of their country. To Violette urban space is the main stage to generate an action and show social problems trough photography. Her work goes beyond the documentary record, using stages and humor as a means to channel scathing criticisms and reflections on socio- political situations.
