David von Blohn
I’m a visual storyteller based in Mexico City.
I’m a visual storyteller based in Mexico, the creative director of the video production company On the Road Media and the multimedia content producer at the digital agency Eco Agency. I’ve collaborated with international media outlets like National Geographic, MSNBC and Al Jazeera and international organizations including the United Nations. The documentary “Los Comandos” about a group of young volunteer rescuers in San Salvador to which I contributed with additional photography was shortlisted for the Oscars 2019. My photographs have been published by media outlets including Time Magazine, The Guardian and El País.
I’ve told stories about women and LGBTI rights, indigenous peoples, environment, education and migration from places including Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Argentina, Chile, India, Bangladesh, Ethiopia and Germany. As an educator, I facilitate workshops about visual storytelling for aspiring storytellers, organizations and corporations and I’m a member of the global creative think tank Sense Network and have worked extensively though the storytelling platform Storyhunter. I’m a filmmaker because I believe in the power of stories to connect people, challenge mentalities and inspire action.
