Mateo Ruiz Gonzalez


Mateo Ruiz Gonzalez is an emerging photographer born in Bogota, Colombia, educated in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and living in Brooklyn, New York, who aptly navigates the disciplines of storytelling, editorial photography, and fine-art photography. 

His work reflects the realist way he observes his environment, blending quietly with his surroundings and taking advantage of natural light to capture real colors. He enforces design rules and structure in his framing, while keeping a candid and organic feel—seeking a constant harmony in his work. Using poetic mediums, Ruiz Gonzalez explores the beauty of unassuming moments, often capturing harsh scenes with a delicate eye, and bringing new value to often-overlooked settings. 

He is the co-founder of Antics Publications—an independent photography publisher based in Brooklyn and Bogotá, Colombia,
