About

José Figueroa

 

Born 1973 in Córdoba, Argentina.

 

José Figueroa studied photography at the university Escuela De Artes Lino Enea Spilimbergo and fine arts at the Facultad de Artes (Universidad Nacional de Córdoba). During his studies he worked as a freelance press photographer, which included many trips to different countries in Latin America.

On his travels, Figueroa was photographing the everyday life in small villages in northern Argentina, Bolivia, Peru, Mexico and Colombia. Since 2000 Figueroa is based in Stockholm, Sweden, working especially with still image and film with assignments from the performing arts field, culture sector, press and media as well as commissioned portraits.

 

For his own projects, he lets himself be attracted by serendipitous occurrences.
