The NYC High Line

The High Line is a park built on an historic high railroad lane. Two New Yorkers developed this project to save an old piece of infrastructure that runs along the lower west side of Manhattan. They brought it back to life by turning it into a fully functioning, ecological and contemporary piece of urban design. The NGO Friends of the High Line was founded in 1999 to provide economic and urban value to the elevated 13-mile high railroad line. Laura Beltrán Villamizar spent a month in New York City and was able to highlight the development of the urban elevated green area called The High Line Park.

This project was initially thought to be a personal project, turning into an ongoing quest for urban aesthetic spontaneity. “I take pictures that I would like to see in someone else’s exhibition, photos that I would like to find in a bookstore.”.

Bogotá born, bred in The Hague, Buenos Aires, Brussels and Berlin, now conquering Amsterdam.

I have been trained to evolve into multimedia journalism. I'm a visual journalist who knows how to tell stories with narrative punch and nuance. Excellent narrative needs outstanding word, image and sound: three things I am passionate about.

I’m a constant explorer of the transformation of the media landscape. Which is why use the tools of my generation and the next one to engage people in all levels: the adaptability of online journalism, the amazing progress in design and innovation as well as the engaging role of social networking.

I allow for serendipity, always.
