Daniel Gordon was born in the year of 1980 in Boston. He is into photography art and his first exhibition was in the year 2001. It was the group exhibition with the other artists.
it has been analysed that the artist was born in Boston was brought up in San Francisco. Daniel is currently living in New York and working their only.
He has introduced the photographs that results in loss of distinction between the collage, sculpture and photograph.
His practices also involve culling images from the internet and making alteration in them so that he can capture them as the photographs (Fried).
he has the unique way of doing it. He used to take the pictures from the digital media and from the analog medium. He integrates the pictures from different mediums and then photographed them.
The best medium to make this alteration is Photoshop. He has used this tool of Photoshop to bring that 3 dimensional touch to the photograph. The process starts with making the shapes and then printing them down. Rearranging the pictures for giving them 3D touch by using Photoshop and in last taking the photograph of this picture and print it. The basic procedure of the art of Daniel is to make the transformation in the 2D picture to 3D picture.
The most interesting thing about this artist and his work is that he has innovated something. The idea of transformation from 2D to 3D is great. As discussed that artist and integrated the digital and non-digital pictures which was a great innovate ion and then photographed it. It brings the traditional painting close to the technology based painting by suing some of the digital tools. I can relate with this artist and his work because I also have an innovative thinking and I do not used to focus on only one art but try to make the fusion of two forms so art such as Daniel has done with photography and free hand painting (Fineman).
