ABOUT

Daniela (b.1996) was born in Peru and raised between Lima and Australia. Blending an approach of fine art with documentary, Daniela focuses on gender with strong interests in displacement, inequality and identity. She is particularly interested in the role of memory, on trauma and belonging which are correlated to her experience as an immigrant and in being raised in a country with a complex post-conflict identity. 

Daniela studied fine arts, humanities and social sciences at New York University in New York, Paris and Abu Dhabi. She interned at The Guardian in the Global Development desk and with The Observer New Review before starting her work as a freelance writer and photographer. Daniela specialised in Documentary Practice and Visual Journalism at the International Centre of Photography in New York and was part of the Eddie Adams Workshop in 2021. 

Proud member of Native Agency , Authority Collective, Diversify Photo and a 2021 Mentee with WomenPhotograph. 

She is available for assignments.
