Daniel García 丹倪
Spanish photojournalist and researcher, born in 1983, currently based in Taipei, Taiwan (ROC).
Born and raised in the south of Spain, I decided to quit everything four years ago and leave for Asia to report the crucial changes happening in this vast region of the world. Previously I've been working for Prisa Revistas, a Spanish company specialized in magazines. There I wrote articles and took pictures for several online/offline publications. During this time I traveled extensively, covering topics in India, France, Norway or my first assignments on East Asia (The green revolution in Taiwan, Tokyo’s underground life or the electrical Hongkonese night).
I studied media at the University of my Hometown, Seville. During this period I had two productive academic exchanges, the first one at Barcelona University and the second one at De Haagse Hogeschool in The Hague, Netherlands. I studied photography during this period. Later on I started to go every weekend on bicycle trips, where I used to take hundreds of pictures. This became a work routine that longs till today. In order to buy equipment I worked temporally as a carpenter –with my father-, pastry chef or waiter.
I've been riding and taking pictures in South Africa, Germany, Netherlands, Taiwan, People's Republic of China, South Korea or Japan.
Based in Taipei, right now I'm finishing my PhD in media and I work regularly as a freelance photojournalist for the Spanish newspaper El País. There I published reports about the Taiwanese cyclist miracle, the measures against natural disasters in Tokyo or the war against pollution in China.
