Daniel Castro Garcia is a Sicily based photographer and filmmaker. Concerned by the images coming from the Mediterranean Sea, he started the project Foreigner in May 2015, with the aim of contributing a more human response to the visual landscape that was defining the crisis.
In 2017, Daniel was named as the recipient of the W. Eugene Smith Grant in Humanistic Photography, received a Magnum Foundation Fund and also the British Journal of Photography International Photography Award. This support has enabled the continuation of his ongoing multi-media project, I Peri N’Tera, which follows the lives of unaccompanied minors living in Sicily, Italy, and the impact of trauma endured by each individual.
