Enoch Contreras is a documentary photographer whose work focuses on spiritual practices, traditions that face extinction, refugee crisis, and social paradoxes. He is currently based in Miami.
A self taught photographer who's intense curiosity and knack for exploring different cultures led him to travel the world to quench his thirst for a deeper understanding of what it means to be human. In his search, he found himself living in Shanghai, and it was in the bustling chaos of it's streets where he began to mold his photography into a documentary style approach.
A thirty minute conversation with a photojournalist that only happened due to a missed flight was the confirmation he needed to know that being a documentary photographer was indeed his new purpose. Since then, Enoch has pursued stories from the IDP camps of Nigeria, to the political protests of Venezuela, all the way to the Amazon jungle with the Tsimane indigenous tribe.
