Danny Ghitis is a Brooklyn-based photographer specializing in social documentary and portraiture work. Born in Cali, Colombia, his family moved to the United States when he was four-years-old. After graduating from the University of Florida in 2006 with a Bachelor of Science in Journalism, he worked for several Florida newspapers before seeking out a freelance career. He now does photography for a variety of clients in New York, including The New York Times. He is constantly searching for interesting strangers and culturally ambiguous spaces to document, believing that challenging social norms with satirical imagery can spark an open dialogue.
