Artist Bio/Statement

Dan Florin was raised in the Northern New York region and currently lives in Peekskill, N.Y.    His work includes both analog and digital photography whose themes range from conceptual to documentary. 

 

Dan holds a BFA in Photography from SUNY at New Paltz and a MSED in Reading from CUNY at Herbert H. Lehman College in the Bronx.  He worked as a B&W reproduction printer and small product photographer in New York City before beginning his career in education.  Dan has worked as an adjunct professor, and is currently a 4th grade teacher and unionist in Yonkers, N.Y.  He maintains a working black and white darkroom in his home and enjoys using digital for his color work.

 

"I use photography to explore the themes and imagery that I find visually appealing and intellectually stimulating.   My work is varied in content and dependent on my passions and interests at any given time.   Whether my themes are visual, conceptual, or documentary, I begin each project with a clear goal which I execute with fidelity until a portfolio of images is complete. This process may take months or years to reach completion.  However, notwithstanding the time frame, the success of my work - whether images of NYC commuters or shadows cast upon a boulder - relies on a degree of anticipated chance and careful composition."
