For Dan, art – and art appreciation – is a path to stillness and awakening.
These days I love to spend my time in nature wandering around with my camera. I still get very quiet and just respond to the beauty I see in front of me. Sometimes I’ll take photographs of what I am seeing and sometimes not.
What I’m doing in photographs is capturing my experience. If you look at my photos and are stopped, then I’ve been successful.
People like to talk about spiritual art but I don’t like to make differences. To me the purpose of any art is to stop you and take you out of yourself.
