Daniel Gordon is a conceptual photographer who lives and works in Brooklyn, New York, credited with a degree in Fine Art from both Bard and Yale School of Art. Gordon made his name by creating a sub-medium of photography and developing an innovative method that had not been seen before. Gordon creates sculpture made from digital imagery he discovers on the web, layering them together but tearing, cutting and fusing them by any means necessary.
These collages are life-size, using his own body as a reference. Once the collages are finished he photographs them with a large format camera. He calls this practice the ‘Physical manifestation of the Web’. The resulting photographs capture compositions ranging from the surreal to the grotesque.
His notable group exhibitions include New Photography 2009 at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and Greater New York 2010 at MoMA PS1. He is the Author of Still Lifes, Portraits, and Parts (Mörel, 2013), Flowers and Shadows (Onestar Press, 2011) and Flying Pictures (powerHouse Books, 2009). He is the winner of the 2014 Foam Paul Huf award, and exhibited his work in a solo exhibition at the museum in 2014.
