A selection of curated media lists from our global community
words – laura beltrán villamizar
location – mexico city, mexico

A long term visual storyteller, Laura Beltrán Villamizar’s career to date has seen her dedicate herself to the promotion and development of visual journalists from under-represented regions and communities, lead educational programmes in Latin America and shape a number of visual identities. Having previously written for us on understanding photography’s roots as a colonial practice, the music lover joins us again to share a playlist of tracks for a time of crisis. Spanning a broad spectrum of artists, genres and time periods, the selection reflects Villamizar’s appreciation of serendipity and highlights the power of music to soothe us through troubling times.
