Profotos Staff Evaluation:
Many photographers, authors, artists, and others dream of traveling the world in search of inspiration and images for their portfolios. Unfortunately, very few of these aspiring people actually have the opportunity to make their dream a reality. For Santiago Vega, this dream is a reality he has lived many times. As a professional photojournalist, Santiago has traveled throughout his dream world of Europe more than a dozen times.
The images in Santiago's portfolio are a combination of photographs, which he captured during these visits to Europe, as well as a few from the USA. While there are very few people who live out this dream of traveling to their favorite destinations, there are even fewer whose destination includes a war-zone. You guessed it, Santiago is part of this minority.
In his statement, Santiago explains how he lives for his next opportunity to photograph people and war. He definitely does a great job at living out his aspirations, as the images in his portfolio are among the best war and photojournalism images you will find anywhere.
Take your time browsing through the portfolio of this masterful image-maker. Very few photographers have the drive and inspiration of Santiago Vega - a true master of the medium.
