After years of focusing on black and white photography, Dan discovered stunning colors and fascinating subjects while traveling in Paris, France. Fortunately, many more trips abroad were in store, and from the mountains of Nepal to the depths of Great Barrier Reef in Australia, and many countries in between, a camera with film were always packed for adventures. Lately, the beautiful Shenandoah Valley, along with the always photogenic city of Staunton, are frequent haunts for capturing local beauty and design.
A Florida native, retired architect and recent resident of Staunton. His passion for photography began while in college. His first influences were the graphic works of Paul Strand, Edward Weston, and Eugene Atget. During extensive widespread travels and drawing on his architectural appreciation, he now focuses on the details of buildings, instinctively capturing the essence of what he observes.
The photographs of this show represent the way he sees architecture.

Her father first taught her to use a camera when she was eight, passing the torch of family photographer quickly. He continued to support and encourage her, but later it was her teacher Eli Vega who gave her the gift of creating art “in camera” while still embracing the simple joy of photographing her adventures.
