One of the thrills of my recent trip to Bogotá was having the opportunity to meet with several excellent photographers living and working in Colombia. I was particularly thrilled to meet the Medellín resident (and fellow Minnesota native) Tom Griggs. Along with doing outstanding photographic work in Colombia, Tom publishes the excellent blog fototazo. Though our mutual blogs, Tom and I are looking to gather information about what is happening in contemporary Colombian photography. In order to do this we’re looking for help from our readers. What are the trends and traditions coming out of Colombian photography? Who’s making interesting work worthy of broader international exposure?
Please leave us your feedback (in Spanish or English). Tom and I look forward to compiling this information and sharing what we’ve learned in the weeks to come.
