Eros Hoagland – Profile

Eros Hoagland began working as a photojournalist in 1993 covering the aftermath of El Salvador’s civil war.

He has continued to work in countries stained with violence and un-rest across the globe including Iraq, Haiti, Mexico and Colombia. As well as documenting the political climate and social impact of conflict, Eros looks for an emotional narrative when approaching reportage projects. Themes are just as important as issues to Eros’ photography. Subtleties are never overlooked as he attempts to convey a feeling of place, character and a larger historical perspective to his viewers. Eros’ assignments have ranged from political uprisings in Latin America to documenting Mormon communities in Utah and a professional bicycle race in California. He is currently working on a long-term project along the U.S. – Mexico border.

Eros’ clients include Time magazine, the New York TimesNewsweekStern and the Fader among others. Corporate clients include Visa, IBM and Wells Fargo. Eros is a native of the San Francisco bay area where he spends his free time surfing the frigid waters of Ocean Beach.
