Freelance, Juan Carlos
I am photographer specializing in documentary, editorial and reportage, covering current national and international news while also pursuing personal documentary projects. Born (1974) in El Salvador, Central America, 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 freelance career photographing assignments and projects in LatinAmerica, 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.
Nowadays, I am based between San Francisco, California and SanSalvador, El Salvador, but always moving.
