Betina Garcia / Visual Journalist
Phone: +45 3166 4477
Based in Copenhagen, Denmark
About me Betina Garcia is a visual journalist based in Copenhagen, Denmark. Driven by curiosity and a quest for finding out who people are and what they are motivated by she wants to expand people’s perspective on life whether the subject is covering women’s issues, gender identity or immigration. She works on long term projects focusing on the Hispanic community and gender identity in the South of the US.
For her it’s important to tell the story using the right medium whether it is using video or stills. She feels it is her responsibility as a visual journalist to inform and start a dialogue with the citizens in order to create more understanding of one and another in a world that is constantly trying to separate us.
