A self-taught fine art photographer since 1982, Danâ€™s earliest influences were Cartier-Bressonâ€™s street photographs, the landscapes of Ansel Adams and the more abstract work of Andre Kertesz Inspired by these and other masters, Dan has spent the intervening years exploring the natural grandeur of Oregon and Utah, as well as the streets of France and Japan, building a body of black and white photographs that evoke exhilaration and wonder. Having shown his work in numerous Portland cafes and restaurants since the mid-80s, Dan's emergence truly began when he was juried into the Portland Saturday Market in 2017. That same year he took part in several group shows, and was awarded an Honorable Mention by The Lakewood Arts Festival in Lake Oswego Oregon. In 2018 he joined The Alberta Street Gallery artist collective in northeast Portland. 2019 has seen Dan let go of his more traditional roots, to explore Experimental Photography where he is working with color and contemporary digital techniques to create deeper and more personal images.
