BIO:Dan Burkholder is known for looking over photography’s horizon to discover new ways of capturing and expressing the photographic image. In the early 1990’s he wrote the groundbreaking book Making Digital Negatives for Contact Printing. After Hurricane Katrina ravaged the Gulf Coast in 1995, Burkholder recorded the chaos of post-Katrina New Orleans in his poignant monograph, The Color of Loss, the first coffee table book photographed entirely with high dynamic range (HDR) techniques. In 2012, Burkholder led the mobile photography revolution with his forward-looking book iPhone Artistry. Dan earned his BA and Master’s degrees in Photography from Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California. His platinum/palladium and pigmented prints are included in private and public collections internationally. Dan’s web site is www.danburkholder.com.

STATEMENT: I’m constantly looking for new approaches, subject matter and chemical or digital technologies that will push me into the next exciting and beautiful way to express the photographic image. Engaging both archival inks and precious metals in my prints, I try to meld technology with aesthetics to capture my surroundings, making the final print a reflection of both my personal vision and photography’s ever-evolving path.
