Markel Redondo

MMW 13: Nov 2012

Markel Redondo started photography at the University of Bolton, United Kingdom. From Bolton I headed East to China where, while studying an MA in Photojournalism, I worked for a number of agencies, newspapers and magazines.

In 2007 I headed back to Europe, returning to my hometown Bilbao in 2008. Now I divide my time between Spain (Bilbao) and France (Bayonne) from where I mainly cover all Spain and South West France.

Focusing on social and environmental issues, I have worked for clients including Greenpeace, WWF,The British Council and Red Bull.

My photographs have been published in Time, Newsweek, Sunday Times Magazine, The Times, Le Monde, Le Figaro Magazine, the New York Times, Monocle, the Wall Street Journal and International Herald Tribune among others.

Markel participated in the November 2012 MediaStorm Storytelling Workshop. He had the following to say about his experience:

I have been looking at MediaStorm for a long time and been able to see how it actually functions from the inside, choosing the right story, preparing interviews, recording sound and working with a team has been of a great value to me. The first training day was very useful in order to take into account all the aspects that make a good story. We had a challenging story with some frustrating moments but I think that was part of the experience and I have learnt a lot from that too. As a photographer I am used to work on my own and seeing how MediaStorm works has proven me that working together is always successful.

The American-Made Benny by Marcin Szczepanski, Markel Redondo and Bill Johnson

Benny is a “certified” garbologist. He collects what others throw away. Benny is also at war with his family. Here is a man sharing a house with his wife but living as a stranger. This is a household on the edge.
