Daniel Piaggio Strandlund was born in Lima, Peru in 1980. Half Swedish, half
Peruvian he grew up in Costa Rica and Sweden. In 2015 he graduated with a Master’s degree in Visual Arts from the School of Arts Ghent KASK. He now lives and works as a photographer and visual artist between Sweden and Belgium.

Marked by an itinerant life, Daniel Piaggio Strandlund creates narratives that
interrogate concepts such as « place » and « home ». His photographs, often penetrated by absence, are an invitation to contemplate our own mystery- we follow
his wanderings through landscapes of extinction, both familiar and exotic.
