Descripción del Artista

Daniele (Italy, 1981) is an award-winning documentary photographer based in Guatemala. His images are chiefly aimed at exploring issues related to human rights and social justice in Latin America. He is also interested in narrating the “human stories” that define Guatemalan society in the aftermath of genocide. His project on the “Ixil Genocide” was published as a book, “Chukel”. Daniele tracked the events unfolding around the development of gold mining in Guatemala’s western highlands with special attention to portraying community opposition to the mining project. In 2012 he published “Under the Same Sky” a book of photographs on the topic with accompanying text in three languages (Spanish, English and Italian). He graduated in “Storytelling and New Media”, an annual course sponsored by Fundacion Pedro Meyer and World Press Photo, Mexico. In addition, he has attended several workshops with accomplished photographers, Rodrigo Abd, Ron Haviv, Luis Gonzales Palma, Cia de Foto, Alejandro Castellote. His works have also been published in numerous outlets, including GEO magazine, National Geographic Proof, TIME LightBox, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Al Jazeera America, Univision Noticias, The British Journal of Photography, The Guardian, el Periodico, il Reportage, Makeshift, 6mois, among others.
