Vídeo entrevista en la prestigiosa LENS CULTURE Magazine.


In 2016, Antonio Aragón Renuncio, a passionate and dedicated Spanish photojournalist, won the $120,000 grand prize in the Hamdan International Photography Award (HIPA) competition in Dubai. His picture was chosen as best embodying the theme, “Happiness.”

Taking home the HIPA purse, one of the largest cash prizes for photography in the entire world, was a shocking contrast for Renuncio. As a storyteller who has dedicated his career to showing his viewers painful and difficult subjects in some of the world’s least documented areas, his selection in Dubai provided an unexpected platform from which share his work.

In this short video interview, Renuncio talks more about his projects, including the prize-winning image, and about life on the road as a photojournalist. Enjoy!
