b. Piedras Negras, Coahuila, Mexico, 1974.
Daniel analyses the limits of urban landscapes and its trajectories. He explores the games of shadows, questioning perception and the medium itself in each image. His urban landscapes draw attention on those city structures that are often overlooked, inviting us to reflect on our relationship with the space.

Currently he is a professor at Ruben Herrera Visual Arts and a member of the National System of Creators, Mexico.
