Pablo Tosco


An Argentine photojournalist, he is concerned to tell the stories of people who have been silenced. A graduate of Social Communication from the National University of Córdoba, he also holds a Creative Documentary master’s degree (2001), and a postgraduate diploma in Visual Anthropology, the latter two qualifications from the Autonomous University of Barcelona. In his work, he is concerned to document inequalities and tragedies caused by migration and exodus, covering, for example, the migratory route of Sub-Saharan Africans who hope for a future in Europe, and the Syrian and Iraq conflicts and their impacts on neighbouring countries like Jordan, Turkey, and Lebanon. Since 2004, Tosco has been working with Oxfam Intermón in the areas of international aid, development projects, and humanitarian assistance in Africa, Latin America, and Asia. Among his projects are his coverage of educational and peace building projects in Angola; life in the refugee camps of Chad, the Central African Republic, South Sudan, and Sudan; initiatives of women’s associations in Morocco, Nicaragua, Peru, the Dominican Republic, and Guatemala; victims of earthquakes in Haiti, Nepal, and Ecuador; the impact of drought on people’s lives in Tanzania, Somalia, Ethiopia, Mauritania, and Burkina Faso; and the Ebola epidemic in Liberia and Sierra Leone. His work has been published in El País, El Mundo, La Vanguardia, Clarín, BBC, TVE, Al Jazeera, CNN, The Guardian, Washington Post, The New Yorker, and The New York Times. He won a World Press Photo Contest award in 2021.
