The Europeans Featured on the New York Times Lens Blog 
Thursday, May 17, 2012, 08:18 - Project News

This week images from The Europeans were featured on the New York Times Lens Blog. Needless to say Iím pretty excited that my work is reaching a larger audience. Iíve been working on this project for the past seven years and there have been many times where I felt I was toiling in obscurity to say the least. Getting a little recognition every now and then feels good.

Damaso Reyes Joins the World Policy Institute 
Tuesday, March 13, 2012, 12:24 - Project News
In other news I've joined the World Policy Institute as a Project Leader!

Some might think it odd that a photojournalist like myself has joined a think tank but I've always been interested in photography as a vehicle to drive discussion, not simply transmit information. If you missed it here's a link to an article I wrote and photographed for World Policy Journal about the asylum system in Austria

Damaso Chosen a a 2012 Knight Luce Religion Reporting Fellow! 
Monday, March 5, 2012, 10:20 - Project News
There is some good news today! I've been selected as a Knight Luce religion reporting fellow. From the release:

Damaso Reyes will investigate the growth of European Pentecostalism led by immigrants from former European colonies. Reporting from Spain, England and Ukraine, Reyes will examine how Charismatic faiths are growing while traditional European Christian religious observance continues to decline. Reyes is a photographer and writer whose work has appeared in The Wall Street Journal, Der Spiegel, and The Christian Science Monitor.

I am looking forward to expanding the story I've been working on and seeing where it takes me!

The Boy is Back in Town 
Tuesday, April 12, 2011, 09:09 - Travel, Project News, Commentary, Photo of the Day

It took me 1 year, 5 months and 10 days to return to Barcelona.

But I have returned.

"Haven't you been saying that for a while now?" Doubters would ask when I told them I was moving here. Timetables shifted, plans were delayed.

But I have returned.

It has been my experience that plans are just that and that reality has a funny way of getting in the way of even the best laid plans. But when I say I'm going to do something I do it. It might take longer than I imagine and be more difficult than I can conceive but I get it done.

So doubters, continue to doubt but look yourself in the mirror and ask yourself: "is this it? Is this what my life is about, how close I will ever come to my dream?"

The answer for me is always no.
