ABOUT ME

Daniela Labastida Salinas

Mexico City, 1990

 

“I see photography as a way of understanding and experiencing the world. It’s all about patience, listening and observation.”

 

I'm a Mexican artist currently living in France.

 

As a photographer, I explore the diverse and complex relationships between humans, animals and nature. Specially, I focus on how living beings interact with their surroundings. My work often depicts the natural world confronted with human environments.

My interests go from travels, anthropology and languages to cinema, education and literature. I believe in the power of art to encourage dialogue. And especially, I believe in the need of sharing with others to create a community and together improve our way of living.
