Freelance, Juan Carlos
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.
