Artist Blog

Every week an artist whose single image was published by Der Greif is given a platform in which to blog about contemporary photography.

I have been a fan of Daniel's work since before I made art myself. I feel lucky to have been able to watch his work grow and progress as my own understanding of photography and art was forming. His work gave me the assurance that my desire to put my hand into my images after shooting them was valid. He says: "Too much of the current dialogue surrounding photography is framed within outdated notions of what photography should or shouldn’t be. I’m not interested in impositions dictated by others, or by history, as to how photography can be implemented. I don’t owe photography anything. It is simply a tool - and as such, it still feels largely underutilized. Rather than asking whether or not something qualifies as photography, we should instead be welcoming what photography is finally becoming." Website and blog
