Julio Eyzaguirre (1991) begins his photographic training in 2016 together with the collective RUIDOPhoto. Between 2016 and 2017, he attended to different workshops with MeMo, together with Jose Colon as a mentor and VII Agency. In 2018 he won a scholarship at Grisart School (Barcelona) to complete his education as a photojournalist.
His first project Hospital del Niño (Children’s Hospital, 2014), was a first approach to social and sanitary problems and a way of understanding the reality of children admitted to this hospital in Peru, a country where the investment in health is less than 6% of the GDP, the amount recommended by WHO.
Yrsa (2016) was the first in-depth project, developed together with RUIDOPhoto. The report portrays severe depression from a personal and intimate perspective, featuring everyday moments in the life of Yrsa, a Swedish girl of 22 years. The multimedia project has been exhibited at the festival “Cortona On The Move” (Italy) and “Mirar Distinto” (Mexico).
X-posed (2018) is a documentary work focused on the constant physical and mental struggle of those who live on the street, unprotected and exposed, in Barcelona, an iconic city that never stops.
Julio currently combines his activity as a freelance photojournalist with the development of documentaries with different foundations and NGOs. His intention is to continue his work and learning as a photojournalist, evidencing realities that many refuse to see.
