Dan (b.1983) is a British photographer based in Norway. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Documentary Photography from the University of South Wales, Newport. His photographic concern lies in social anthropology. Within that, he seeks out themes that explore how humanity navigates issues in modern life, blending aspects of traditional documentary practices with a more conceptual approach. He finds intrigue in the structures of society and the laws that are set out in order to achieve the level of symbiosis we enjoy today.

Dan’s approach to the photographic process sees him working on lengthy research based projects, analysing a story in full before committing to the image making process. He is currently working as a freelance photographer, splitting his time between working on commissioned editorial work and developing a new long term body of work.
