I’m David von Blohn, a documentary cinematographer based in Mexico City, currently working as a contract cinematographer for AJ+ Español and a contract video producer for the United Nations.

My work focuses on women’s and LGBTI rights, indigenous peoples, environment and migration and has taken me to more than 15 countries across Latin America, Africa, Asia and Europe.

My clients include Al Jazeera, National Geographic, MSNBC and the United Nations. I contributed photographic work to the documentary “Los Comandos,” which narrates the story of young volunteer rescuers in San Salvador. The documentary was shortlisted for the Oscars 2019. My still photographs have been published in TIME Magazine, The Guardian and El País. 

I studied philosophy, politics and literature at Heidelberg University and Universidad de Chile and speak German, Spanish, English and Portuguese.
