One night, Daniel Serva (@daniel_serva) began to heal his heart inside a self-portrait. That image marked the beginning of Daniel’s “365 Project,” a visual diary of his emotions every day of the year. “I don’t usually talk about my feelings,” says the Venezuelan student who lives in Paraguay. “But with the help of photography I can have a catharsis.” His strength and creative expression come from the land of dreams. “One of the reasons why I play so much with surrealism is because I want to show people another version of what’s possible,” he explains.
