Betina Garcia is a documentary photographer based in Copenhagen, Denmark. Driven by curiosity, she’s on a quest to know people and what motivates them – she wants to expand people’s perspective on life. Her stories have been published in various media outlets including Refinery29, DR, Berlingske, Jyllandsposten, and BT. In 2016, she attended the Eddie Adams Workshop and has been honored in the College Photographer of the Year Competition in the feature, documentary, and portfolio category. She graduated from the Danish School and Media’s photojournalism program in June 2016 and did an exchange at Western Kentucky University in the fall of 2015. She interned as a staff photographer at Scanpix, the biggest picture agency in Scandinavia, for a year and a half. For Garcia, it’s important to tell the story using the right medium, whether it is using video or stills. She feels that it’s her responsibility as a photojournalist to inform and start dialogues that foster a better understanding of each other in a divided world
