As a Photographer who embraced everything that was beautiful about Film Photography, the new digital age was, for a while, a source of some distress to Dan. He collected frames from the end of the films he shot and printed a series of images called "The End of Film".
What Dan has to say about this Collection. "The End of Film is like The Happy Accident. Film was only ever the intermediary to the print. It's the print that endures and does the telling. That's how all of this kind of art work should happen, the unexpected and an element of a journey adding to why something makes sense, this is the message it's conveying. The digital files have come of age, they are now worth printing."
