Born in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, Pedro Farias Nardi is a photojournalist focused on the lives of people that are socially and economically alienated. He covers an array of topics that vary from the response of these groups to the policies of modern capitalism and its impact on demoted sectors of society. In addition, he documents the cultural dynamics that are in flux both in his native country (Dominican Republic) and Latin America.
A graduate student of Social Anthropology, Pedro uses photography and film to depict his stories. Examples of his projects document the lives of cotton farmers in India, the miners in the Bolivian Altiplano, the human situation after the Chernobyl disaster, Ukraine and Bateyes in the Northwest Line in the Dominican Republic, among others. His approach aims to question the human condition in different environments and social enclaves as well as present concpetual images of the paces he visits during his journeys.
Pedro lives in the Dominican Republic and is available for assignment.
