Based in New York City, artist Daniel Shea’s photographs bear witness to his parallel practice as a sculptor. His eye for shape and contour—the graphic elements within a composition—is softened by a painterly feel for texture and colour. His work explores the possibilities of photography, resulting in images that are equal parts intuition and calculation. Recent publications include the monographs 43-35 10th Street, Kodoji Press, and Ex Nihilo, In Other Words Press. He has exhibited at many galleries and museums internationally, including the Foam Fotografiemuseum, Amsterdam, Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago, and Vava Gallery, Milan. He has been a resident artist at Light Work, Syracuse, and his commissioned work has appeared in The New Yorker, Double and Fantastic Man.
