Oscar B. Castillo

Venezuelan by birth, much of Oscar’s most personal work has focused on the challenges Venezuela has faced over the course of the last two decades. In 2022 Oscar released his first book, Esos Que Saben. For years Oscar followed members of the Free Convict hip hop group, from their roots in Venezuelas prisons back to the streets of Caracas. Esos Que Saben has since been selected by TIME Magazine as one of 20 the best photography books of 2022, and shortlisted for the celebrated Aperture/PARIS Book Award.

Oscar has worked with some of the most important international publications of our time, including: Le Monde, The Wall Street Journal, Time Magazine and The New Yorker, among others. Oscar’s work has been celebrated and supported by 3 Magnum Foundation grants, a Eugene Smith Fellowship, and a grant from World Press Photo.
