Daniel Duart. Photographer
Born in Valencia, Spain, in 1975.
I studied a degree in English Language and did a Master in Translation. Meanwhile, in 1996, I started as a documentary photographer, that was when I went to Moscow to work as a translator and learn Russian. There, I started taking pictures of the city and began my fondness for photography. After a few years working freelance (1998-2003) I started to work as a photojournalist for local newspapers and european agencies in Eastern Spain (2003-Today). Since 2011 I’m getting into the fashion photography and its great tiny world. Surprisingly, the fashion world has led me to love portraiture and in 2013 I got back to taking pictures with my medium format camera and black & white negative, let’s see where this takes me…
Also in 2013 I won the second prize of the Sony World Photography Awards in the Travel category. The Sony guys took me to do a Tour in Latinamerica, visiting Argentina, Chile, Perú and Puerto Rico.
