I am a photo and video journalist from Mexico City and based in New York. I am currently producing and shooting for VICE News Tonight on HBO.
Before that I was a grantee of the Brown Institute for Media Innovation at the Columbia Journalism School where I taught as an Adjunct Assistant Professor for photography and video classes. I got my Master's degree from Columbia Journalism School in 2013 and my B.A. from The New School in 2010.
I am particularly interested in covering immigration, identity and human rights. My work has taken me to Mexico, Guatemala,Cambodia, Colombia, Cuba, and most recently to Peru. My work has appeared in HBO, Vice News, TIME, NatGeo, The New York Times, Blue Chalk Media, Narratively and more.
I am available for freelance work in and out of town. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org, 646-420-3033, or via Twitter and Instagram at @jikaglez.
