Wonderful prints by Daniel Danger. For the most part they are wonderful but I have to be honest, this one creeps me out! My worst fear might be deep open water. In elementary school I remember someone having a Magic card with an illustration of a man in a rowboat in a small lake with a giant fish (literally the size of the entire lake) looking up from the bottom. Terrifying!
American artist Diane Meyer questions the ability of photography to accurately preserve our memory and experience, highlighting its tendency to obscure the past by transforming history into an object of nostalgia. Embroidering directly onto photographs taken along the former path of the Berlin wall, see more images from “Berlin” below.
