Daily life around the world

Daily life around the world

Our daily life series is a visual exploration of everyday imagery from around the globe.

The latest installment begins in North Korea, where colorful buildings are seen in the morning light in Pyongyang. 

In Serbia, an Afghan refugee prays in an abandoned warehouse where he and other migrants took refuge in Belgrade. In Peru, a man floats in the Pacific Ocean off Agua Dulce beach in Lima.

In China, snow gathers on a Chinese security guard's uniform as he stands in China's capital where snowfall is relatively uncommon. In Lithuania, the moon rises behind the Cathedral-Basilical in Vilnius.

Nat Castañeda is an interdisciplinary visual artist based in Brooklyn, New York. A California native, Castañeda works primarily in video and collage, with an emphasis on tactile intimacy with her materials remaining an important aspect of all her projects. Common issues in Castañeda’s work are the conflating of iconography and pornography, the questioning of traditional gender binaries, and the role of technology within personal narratives. She received her MFA from the School of Visual Arts and has shown at venues such as El Museo del Barrio and Electronic Arts Intermix. In addition to her art practice, Castañeda currently works at The Associated Press where she leads a team that curates AP's online archive of historic and contemporary photojournalism. Castañeda’s photography has appeared in the New York Times,U.S. News & World Report and USA Today.
