PHOTOJOURNALISM

BORJA ABARGUES

Documentary Photographer | Photojournalist

Valencia (ESP)

I started my studies at the Blank Paper Documentary Photography School (Valencia, Spain).

Although my technical training was totally self-taught, very soon I began to be interested in photojournalism with professionals such as Gervasio Sánchez or Sandra Balsells.

During my career as a professional photographer, I have collaborated with multiple media, agencies and NGOs. Currently, I work for entities such as CRUZ ROJA or NASCO FEEDING MINDS, with the NURPHOTO agency and the EDICIONES PLAZA group.

I have participated in several photographic contests, and I have obtained recognitions such as those obtained in the INTERNATIONAL PHOTO AWARDS, in 2017 and 2019, the LICC of London in 2018, or the different selections in DESCUBRIMIENTOS PHOTOESPAÑA in the 2015 and 2016 editions.

Currently, I am immersed in the realization of new projects related to social crises in the world, health and environmental impact.
