Daniella's ongoing project 'Signs of Your Identity' has been recognized with the 2017 Arnold Newman Prize, a 2017 RFK Journalism Award, the 2016 Magnum Foundation Inge Morath Award, and the 2016 FotoEvidence Book Award. Daniella’s work regularly appears in The Wall Street Journal, Mashable, the BBC, and CNN, among others.
