Dan Shepherd develops a layered, formal view of our environment by focusing on colors, shapes, and textures. As he explains, he seeks to "use the power of abstraction to filter out the science details in his head" so that he can focus on the purely visual elegance of nature and create almost portrait-like images of trees, plants and landscapes. In his work, he expands his breadth by photographing the characteristics of our landscape at various botanical locations in New York, Alaska, and California.
Dan Shepherd has a master’s degree in environmental science from Columbia University
and an International Diploma in Plant Conservation from the Royal Botanic Garden,
Kew, England. He holds a B.A. in Japanese from the University of Oregon. His work
has been shown in various locations throughout the country, and has been featured in
several recent publications, including: “The Orion Magazine,” “The F-Stop Magazine –
Abstraction” and “Lenscratch.”
