About

diego zapatero

Diego Zapatero (1982, Zaragoza, Spain). Pianist and composer, he also went through a MA in Business Administration and Management before discovering his passion lies in photography.

After years of visual training he made his big break to Asia, where he arrived as a newcomer during the Merapi volcano eruption in Java in 2010, on which he reported daily for 2 months. This milestone in his photographic career deeply influenced his approach to photojournalism and documentary photography. The benefits of the ensuing exhibitions were dedicated to help those affected.

Currently based in the cultural capital of Indonesia, Yogyakarta, he was granted a Third year Photojournalism Scholarship through the Indonesian Institute of Arts, collecting human interest visual stories throughout Indonesia.
