Met Dan almost a decade ago at my show at Totem Pole Gallery in Shinjuku and after seeing his work, it really struck me because his editing was so different. The cooler hues and darker tones had an atmosphere that nobody was doing at the time. I think if you look at it now, it is almost an Instagram aesthetic that his work really predated. I also like the fact when you meet him, his demeanor and presence reflect his work, something I noticed in a lot of good photographers that translates to a truth of expression.
