Juan Cristóbal CoboCobo was born in Colombia and moved to New York as a teenager. His earliest passions were centred around film making, but after many years as a cinematographer and commercial director, he found himself strongly drawn to the art of photography. As an autodidact, he brings his years of knowledge to the still image, combining his understanding of light and composition with a passion for the story. Cobo is deeply curious about the people around him, and remains curious about himself and his own emotions; and he tries to connect these to his pictures.
Cobo's work has been featured in National Geographic, The Washington Post, The New York Times, Bloomberg Businessweek, Science Magazine, Art Magazine, L’œil de la Photographie, among others.
