|About the Artist:
Documentary Photographer based in Pakistan
After graduating as a journalist, in 2005 he received a grant from the Aragón Press Association that allowed him to start working as a photographer for the daily "El Territorio" and later for the Argentinian newspaper “La Nación”. It was a year he used to develop his own understanding of Photography.
He returned to Spain and started to discover his style in the Albarracín Masterclass, taught by Gervasio Sánchez. Since then Diego never stopped exploring the soul of what he is capturing. He was granted again, this time to visit Bosnia. When he was checking his e-mail in Mostar, the catalonian NGO PAX Fundation asked Diego to travel to Colombia to document the reality of the landmines, a complex issue he was to cover again in a trip to Algeria, where he looked for the forgotten stories of the Saharaui people.
After two years living in Barcelona and working as a staff photographer for the Catalan newspaper “Avui”, he got a postgraduate in Photojournalism at Universitat Autónoma de Barcelona. He decided then to embrace the Middle East and Asia in the search of his own photographic style.
He has been living in Pakistan since 2009. Diego is currently established as a correspondent for a Spanish television channel in Pakistan and he is a member of CORDON PRESS / CORBIS, an international photo agency.
He is also one of the founders of ZPhoto, a collective that was born to create a space of photographic dialogue in Zaragoza called “ZARAGOZA PHOTO FESTIVAL” in Spain.
While in Pakistan, he is been publishing some of his works with “El País”, “El País Semanal”, “El Periódico de Catalunya”, “La Razón”, “Tiempo de Colombia” and “L’Equipe”.
