My name is Jorge Saenz and I am 59 years old.
I have two daughters, three sons, and three grandsons.
I’m Argentinian born and living in Paraguay, South America, since 1989.
I am a Photojournalist and I’ve worked in newspapers and magazines since 1978, I joined The AP agency in 2003 for Paraguay and the region, in other words this year I accomplish 40 years working in, learning and teaching Photography.
Parallel to my job in the nineties I developed various long-term personal works, mostly documentary essays about the situation of youths in Obligatory Military Service and the life into Juvenile Jail.
The last book I published was in 2013, it is named “Classes, Paraguay 2003-2013” and it talks about the social contrast and inequality in the country.
Nowadays I’m working in the first part of a photographic children book collection with stories based in a group of dinosaurs that run around the globe to understand human nature and it’s consequences for the earth’s live. This is based in an Instagram photographic story that I made with my mobile phone during different work and holiday trips around Latin America; this account has more than 40.000 followers around the world.
