Luis Ascui was born in Santiago, Chile, in 1966, and has worked as a professional photojournalist in South America, Australia, Europe, and South East Asia over the last 18 years. In 2000, he received the Nikon Award for Photojournalism, and through his work explored the political turmoil and changes in Indonesia. He has undertaken projects in Afghanistan, Cambodia, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and Sarajevo. His work reflects an interest in the human struggle to survive under intolerable conditions, and the impact of war and disaster remain strong themes â€“whether among images of life in Taleban-controlled Kabul or the destructive scope of Asiaâ€™s devastating tsunami. A grant from Panos (London) assisted documentation of Mayan culture in Central America in 1994, and images of Guatemala were exhibited in Copenhagen at the United Nations Summit for Social Development. Luis Ascui has been involved in books and exhibitions throughout his career, including a Leica-sponsored exhibit of images of Sarajevo that took place in Australia in 1997. Luis has been affiliated with respected agencies including Getty Images, The Associated Press, Matrix, and Polaris. He is published widely by magazines and newspapers, and now operates as a staff member for Fairfax Business Media based in SydneyLuis Enrique Ascui 's current location:
