DANIEL RODRÍGUEZ | PHOTOGRAPHER



Rodríguez nació en Fusagasugá, Colombia, y estudió en Bogotá, en el Colegio la Salle. Fue asistente y estudiante de cámara fotográfica de Luis Benito Ramos (1899-1955), “considerado el padre de la fotografía moderna colombiana”, y cuyo trabajo se destacó por salir del estudio tradicional a retratar instantes de exteriores, lo cual fue posible gracias a la entonces nueva tecnología de su pequeña cámara Rolleicord. Después de trabajar con el maestro Ramos, Daniel Rodríguez fue fotógrafo independiente y trabajó para publicaciones como Cromos, Semana, El Tiempo y el Espectador. También fue cronista gráfico y por un tiempo, el director de reportería gráfica del periódico el Espectador, además de orientar “los cambios tecnológicos para implementar la transición de la fotografía en blanco y negro a color”. Rodríguez es reconocido dentro de la historia de la fotografía en Colombia como parte del equipo fotográfico donde se encuentran: Ignacio y Luis Gaitán, José Joaquín Pulido, Guillermo Lafant, Luis B. Ramos, Guillermo Castro, Agustín Reyes y Jorge Montoya —que “tuvieron a su cargo la información visual en el país durante los años treinta y cuarenta”
