Talent and Intensity
Haroldo Castro was born in Italy from a Brazilian father and a French mother. He lived in all his home countries - Italy, France, and Brazil - and resides in the US and in Brazil. He has visited and documented more than 150 countries around the world.
Some friends consider him a modern Renaissance person, a multi-talented free spirit character who might be meeting an Environmental Minister in the morning and participating in a shaman ritual in the evening. "Diversity is key to life on Earth. As nature is extremely diverse, so are human beings. Diversity of activities is the antidote for dullness," affirms Haroldo.
During the last decade, Haroldo Castro spent half of his time traveling in the five continents: filming gorillas in Rwanda, photographing nomads in Mongolia, leading photo workshops in Chile, and participating in international environmental meetings to design awareness strategies. Many people would envy his frenetic activity. "I must live each day with as much intensity as I can," says Haroldo
