Heeb Magazine sent me to the studio of artist and photographer Daniel Gordon. I had never seriously photographed a fellow photographer before so the experience seemed quite challenging at first, but once I got to his studio was I so excited to see his space. Among the tables and lights, were piles of disfigured past components of his work, torn paper everywhere, a paper, eye, a paper head.
Gordon is a still-life photographer who creates digital dreamscapes within the real world. His mediums are paper, ink, and light, and his tool is the 4x5 camera. He's a truest, even in this age of silicon chips and digital printing, Gordon makes his own c-prints of the final pieces, something that feels rare these days. Nevertheless while I perused his studio and sifted through once main characters of a past still-life I discovered a large format ink jet printer, which he uses in the earlier steps of his process. Well rounded indeed. You can see some of his work here.
