Award-winning photographer, journalist, and author Kike Calvo was born in Spain, has traveled in more than 85 countries, and transformed his fascination with Latin America into a career focus. He has been a guest lecturer at Yale University or the School of Visual Arts, and is a freelancer for the New York Times. His cultural and environmental documentary photography has also been published in National Geographic, Time, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, New York Magazine, Rolling Stone, and Vanity Fair, as well as other publications. His book Habitats, with forewords by famed National Geographic marine photographer David Doubilet and Jean-Michel Cousteau and launched at the Reina Sofia Museum, showcases ecosystems from Spain and around the world. In making the official book for the International Water Expo, Kike rediscovered Spain and its intricate relation with water, visually exploring his native land's landscapes and culture. From topsy-turvy mountain valleys seen from within rivers while shooting underwater photographs, to birds-eye views of fields tinted by pink almond trees while shooting aerial photographs, Kike created an exhibition titled ¨What Goya Never Imagined.¨ His children's book series The Adventures of Kikeo supported the United Nations Water Decade campaign in Spain. Kike´s images have been exhibited in New York, Paris, Chicago, Manila, Germany, and Spain at venues such as the United Nations, King Juan Carlos I Center, and Instituto Cervantes and Pablo Serrano Museum, among others. With a strong interdisciplinary background, Kike continues his education by teaching photography at workshops and seminars around the world. When he is not on assignment, instructing, or guiding, he is having gazpacho made from his grandmother’s Andalusian recipe.
