About the speaker
Honduran writer and documentary photojournalist, Tomas Ayuso seeks to bind the disparate threads of communities into the grand interlinked story of the Western Hemisphere. In covering the different types of violence facing the region’s people, Tomas hopes to create a record of both continental struggles and local successes. He is based in the Americas.
As a fellow of Open Society Foundations, Tomas continues to cover the Honduran collapse and its far-reaching consequences as the country’s youth struggle for survival in a project called The Right to Grow Old. He is also a National Geographic Explorer where he is developing a semi-autobiographical project on the Palestinian diaspora in Latin America which he belongs to. Early in 2019 World Press Photo highlighted Tomas as one of the top 36 emerging global talents. He’s recently been awarded the 2019 James Foley Award for Conflict Reporting due to his unflinching coverage of conflict in Latin America as it relates to the drug war, forced displacement and urban dispossession.
