João Pina is a Portuguese photographer who has worked primarily in Latin America but also has covered human-rights stories and conflicts in Afghanistan, Libya, Egypt, Ivory Coast and Mozambique. He is a regular contributor to The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Le Monde, El País and Stern. In 2007, with Rui Daniel Galiza, he completed his first book, “Por teu livre pensamento,” featuring the stories of 25 former Portuguese political prisoners. In 2014, he published “Condor,” about a military operation designed to destroy political opposition to the military dictatorships in South America during the 1970s.
