Artist Statement

G Dan Mitchell is a California photographer and visual opportunist whose subjects include the Pacific coast, redwood forests, central California oak/grasslands, the Sierra Nevada, California deserts, urban landscapes, night photography, and more.

"I have photographed since childhood when my father introduced me to cameras and the darkroom, and I was fascinated in my youth by the work of the west coast landscape photographers such as Weston and Adams. Although my academic and professional life turned towards music, I continue to make photographs, primarily focusing on the natural landscape, but also exploring a wide range of other subjects."

"Nearly a decade ago I began to make night photographs, entranced by the quiet and meditative nature of the work and by the ability to create photographs of things that cannot be seen with my own eyes - faint light in near darkness, transient subjects that move during long exposures, and the magical nocturnal transformation of ordinary things into things of mystery and beauty."

G Dan Mitchell will exhibit with the Studio Nocturnes group, and show framed 18" x 24" archival pigment prints along with some unframed work in smaller sizes.
