Daniel Hefty is a photographer and conceptual artist, with a career spanning three decades and four continents. The current focus of his work is cross-cultural interactions, especially migration in its myriad forms, a project inspired by the journeys of the medieval Moroccan traveler, Ibn Battutah. With roots in the American Midwest where he was born and raised, but now based in Spain, Daniel sees labels, such as nationality and religion, as convenient ways of asserting identity but also as obscuring a reality that is far more nuanced and fluid. As a migrant documenting migrants, and one who is a participant rather than a mere observer, Daniel relates to his subject matter in a far from dispassionate way. The latest chapter of his work examines Syrian refugees in Lebanon, and the relationship between the displaced and their hosts. His portfolio can be found at www.danielhefty.com.
