Mario Castro Baro (Madrid, 1987) is an artist based in León (Spain) whose projects follow paths of introspection and search, insofar as they constitute a deliberate means of approaching the deepest and most archaic layers of human psychology. His work is part of important collections such as DKV, ILC / Diputación de León and Castilla y León Contemporary Art Collection. It has also been exhibited at photography festivals such as Encontros da Imagen (Braga), Fotogenio (Mazarrón), Rassegna Internazionale (Bologna) or Cuna del Parlamentarismo (León).
