Luis Antonio Rojas is a freelance documentary photographer from Mexico City.

He has a Civil Engineering degree at the Iberoamerican University, where he began photographing the urban fracture derived from the construction of the Santa Fe megaproject in the outskirts of Mexico City, which led to his first publication in the New York Times. Since then he has been working with communities facing urban phenomena.

Between 2015 and 2016 he worked as an assistant for several international photojournalists, including Daniel Berehulak and Sebastien Van Malleghem.

He recently graduated from the Visual Journalism and Documentary Practice Program at the International Center of Photography with a Wall Street Journal Scholarship, was shortlisted for the Lucie Foundation Emerging Artist Scholarship, was nominated for the World Press Photo 6x6 Global Talent Program and was honored with the "Keep in Flight" Award for embodying the heart and soul of John White's message at the EAW XXXI.

His work has been published in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The New Yorker, The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg and ESPN.
