Federico Ruiz, aka Astronauta Perdido (The Lost Astronaut), is a passionate photographer from the vibrant city of Medellín, Colombia. Faces, signs, parties, and movements are condensed into powerful photographs which have been featured  in local newspapers and magazines such as JPG. His work is a demonstration of this adventurous spirit. Last year Federico’s photos were part of Colombia Connect, a display of young Colombian talent in Taiwan, and this year he was a part of the London expo, Colombia y su Riqueza, held at the London School of Economics.
