Harvey Castro (he/him) is a documentary photographer and multidisciplinary artist focusing on topics related to immigration, identity, diversity, and climate justice. As a photographer, immigrant, and person of color, Castro draws inspiration from his lived experience to engage with the people he photographs. This genuine engagement leads him to build relationships resulting in candid portraits and intimate scenarios taken in public and private spaces. His images often show the inadvertent dramas of everyday life. You notice those moments that signify a feeling, thought or emotion that reflects their condition, the distaste, or joy in their life. His images reflect the bonds of support and camaraderie within each community that make resistance possible against adversity and exclusion. Originally from Nicaragua, Castro lives and works in Oakland, California.
