About Danny Ghitis | Photography Archive


Danny Ghitis (b. 1982) is a Brooklyn-based editorial and commercial photographer whose personal projects revolve around the relationship between memory and identity. The son of Jewish South American immigrants, he moved around a lot as a child, which helped him to develop a lifelong interest in documenting the lives of strangers and culturally ambiguous communities. With his work he attempts to pose questions, rather than answers, to challenge expectations and encourage introspection.

He was a frequent contributor to The New York Times, and other clients include Adbusters, AFAR, Baked by Melissa, Bon Appetit, Billboard, Bloomberg Businessweek, BUST, Chicago Tribune Magazine, Chronicle of Higher Education, CNN, Global Strategy Group, Gothamist, Maclean’s, Money, Morgan Stanley, Newsday, The New Yorker, Rolling Stone, Stern, TIME, VICE, and others.

Danny has been recognized by American Photography 29/30/31/32, Magenta’s Flash Forward, nominated for PDN’s 30, the Nikon Emerging Talent Award, the Hearst Photojournalism Championship, College Photographer of the Year, the National Press Photographers Association, University of Florida’s Scholars Program, nominated for UNICEF Photo of the Year, and the Eddie Adams Workshop.
