Javier Rozo Vengoechea
Bogotá, Bogota, Colombia
After twelve years working as an Economist in public policy affairs in Colombia, I felt that I needed to share my view of social realities in a different way far from the pure rational and statistics approach. I want to explore social realities visually. I studied photography (Labloom School of Photography, Bogota, 2011-2014) in order to start a career change and attended several documentary workshops. Thereafter, I have been working in personal and institutional documentary projects. Also, I took a couple of literary journalism workshops. I am a dedicated husband and father of a baby boy.
