fototazo has asked a group of 50 curators, gallery owners, blog writers, photographers, academics and others actively engaged with Latin American photography to pick two photographers whose work deserves recognition.

This project aims to highlight great work being made in the region today and also to provide a starting point in both English and Spanish for exploring contemporary Latin American photography. LatAm f100 is a collaboration between fototazo and the photographer and educator Jaime Permuth.

Today we continue the series with selections by Joana Toro. Her biography follows her selections as well as a list of previous contributors to the series.

From the artist
Faith, like everything human, does not manifest in the abstract but rather incarnates itself in some circumstance, in a small place, in a beloved face. or in the desire, at times almost desperate, to heal. This series documents a cleansing, or healing ceremony, called a "Black Bath" used to cleanse and heal the body and free any bad energies caused by jealousy and envy. Cleansing is a very common practice throughout Latin America, where it takes different forms of execution. This series was created in Concepción, Bolivia, as part of the 20 Fotógrafos camp, a workshop organized by Colectivo +1, and sponsored by National Geographic, Sony, and other allies.

La fe, como todo lo humano, no se manifiesta en lo abstracto, sino que se encarna en alguna circunstancia, en un pequeño lugar, en una cara amada, o en el deseo, a veces casi desesperado, de sanar. Esta serie documenta una limpia, ceremonia de limpieza y sanción, llamada un "Baño Negro” que se utiliza para sanar el cuerpo y liberarse de malas energías causadas por celos o envidias. La limpia es una practica muy común en toda America Latina, donde toma diferentes formas y practicas de ejecución. Esta serie fue realizada en Concepción, Bolivia, en el marco del campamento de 20 Fotógrafos, un taller organizado por el Colectivo +1, y patrocinado por National Geographic, Sony y otros aliados.

Fototazo continues to move its microgrant program towards offering workshops and photography-oriented travel experiences for groups of young, emerging photographers in Colombia. When the opportunity arises, however, individual grants will continue to be awarded.

Talented young photographer Daniel Ochoa, 20-years-old, and from Barbosa, just outside Medellín, was paired with a donor over the winter holidays who gave Daniel a used Sony  DSC-WX80 to be able to continue creating his work with a better camera.

Daniel is to the left. The other images included here are from Daniel's portfolio.
