Daniela (b.1996, Lima, Peru) is a multidisciplinary photographer, artist and writer currently working on long term documentary projects focused on the personal consequences and impact of political and social disruption. Her interests are on migration, public health, gender and identity.

She graduated from the Royal College of Art (London) and from NYU with a degree on Comparative Literature and Film focused on post-colonialism and politics of representation.  She studied at ICP Visual Journalism and is currently a Masters student on Global Affairs and Development.
