James Foley and Steven Sotloff, the two journalists recently beheaded on video by members of the militant group Islamic State, had a number of things in common. They both cared deeply about the Middle East and believed that stories from the region needed telling. They were intelligent and brave. And they were both freelancers.

Introduction

I am photographer specializing in documentary, editorial and reportage, covering current national and international events while also pursuing personal documentary projects. Born (1974) in El Salvador, Central America and then immigrated to the United States during the mid-1980’s settling in Los Angeles, California where I attended California State University, Northridge, obtaining a B.A. in Arts with an emphasis in Interior Design. Upon graduation, I applied my skills to photography and have since developed a vocation as a photojournalist, 

Over the course of my career I photographed many recent political, social, environmental,  health, human rights and conflict  issues  in Latin America, Middle East and Europe, focusing on under-reported issues and long-term projects, including the ongoing post-conflict situation in my native country of El Salvador.

As a freelancer I have carry out assignments, reportage and stories for many of the leading publications. Nowadays, I am based between San Francisco, California and San Salvador, El Salvador, but always moving.


                                                      

fotógrafo documentalista, editorial y reportages así como proyectos de largo plazo, dando cobertura a noticias y temas actuales a nivel nacional e internacional, mientras que también llevo acabo proyectos personales. Nací en El Salvador (1974)  y emigre a los Estados Unidos durante la década de los ochenta, estableciéndome en Los Ángeles, California. Asistí a la Universidad Estatal de California, Northridge obteniendo una licenciatura en artes con énfasis en diseño de interiores. Después de mi graduación, apliqué mis conocimientos a la fotografía y desde entonces he desarrollado una vocación como fotoperiodista .

A lo largo de mi carrera he fotografiado temas  de  política, medioambiente , salud , derechos humanos, sociales  y conflictos en América Latina , Oriente Medio y Europa , centrándome en temas de bajo perfil y proyectos a largo plazo, incluyendo la situación de la posguerra en mi país natal de El Salvador.

Como un profesional independiente he hecho asignaciones , reportajes e historias para muchas de las principales publicaciones.  Actualmente, divido mi tiempo, entre San Francisco,California y San Salvador, El Salvador, pero siempre en movimiento, trabajando como fotoperiodista freelance.

 

As a freelancer I have carry out assignments, reportage and stories for many of the leading publications such as Newsweek, The Wall Street Journal, Stern, The New Review, The Daily Mail, Elle, Financial Times, Washington Post, Nouvel Observateur, FLYP Media, La Croix, The London Paper, DW (Deutsche Welle), The Independent, Focus, Kosmos Journal, Qué Pasa, The Calgary Herald, The San Francisco Examiner, Fronteras de la Noticia, Tele7, Financial Post, Enfoque, Alianza News, The Globe 7 Mail, The Chronicle of Philanthropy among others.
