Biography

Dan is a British photographer based in Northern Norway. He studied documentary photography at the Magnum affiliated Newport University in South Wales. His main photographic interest lies in anthropology. Within that, he seeks out themes that explore how humans interact with their surroundings and how modern infrastructure and ideology coexists with the natural world. 

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, set to be released in late 2018.
