About Atoq

Atoq (30) is a Peruvian photojournalist, cultural manager and activist. Since 2015, he has used his photography to denounce police violence during social protests in Peru. In 2020, he organised a group of independent photojournalists, activists, and artists into the FAC collective – Fotógrafxs Autoconvocadxs (‘Self-Convened Photographers’). This collective reports police abuses during protests and denounces the human rights violations by the Peruvian State. Atoq also coordinates the project ¿Quién vigila a los vigilantes? (‘Who watches the watchers?’) together with the FAC collective, which seeks to protect the right to protest and denounces police persecution in digital spaces.

Atoq is currently participating in Shelter City, a global movement of safe spaces for human rights defenders at risk. Atoq is staying in Shelter City The Hague, and is part of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affair’s support for journalists at risk.
