Juan Arredondo is a Colombian-American photographer whose images explore social inequality and human-right issues.  

Juan assisted photographers Eugene Richards and Lori Grinker, and held a teacher assistant position at ICP (International Center of Photography) in New York City. That same year Juan began to travel to Colombia to photograph that country’s protracted conflict. 

Juan is a regular contributor for The New York Times and National Geographic. His photographs have been featured in The Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, ESPN, Vanity Fair, LeMonde Magazine, Der Spiegel, amongst others.
