Artist Statement

Daniel’s earnest desire and curiosity to explore the world with a camera in his handhas no boundaries. His adventurous travels across the globe tell incredible stories that are overwhelming and breathtaking. Where the edge of the earth meets the corner of the sky, Daniel produces visual masterpieces with a powerful connection to our amazing planet. The intensity of how he expresses the essential soul of a place is truly astonishing.

As a sensitive and creative observer, he strives for fresh perspectives, undiscovered layers and dimensions that depict amazing images with a true connection to his environment. He is best known for images that use natural light to capture humanizing moments and compelling, compositional landscapes. Putting his captured impressions into a temporary spotlight, visually isolated from the surrounding chaos, he carefully masters the balancing act of getting an aesthetical interpretation without creating a posed appearance.

Focusing on what’s beautiful on our planet, his heartfelt desire is to share all he has witnessed so far: feeling humble and modest, realizing what a tiny place we occupy in this world.
