Most recently on exhibit in Charlotte, North Carolina at Doma Art Gallery, just blocks from the new NASCAR Hall Of Fame. Autophotopia is now available directly from the studio of fine art photographer Daniel Stein.
Autophotpia images are shot on traditional medium format black-and-white silver gelatin film. The film is then drum scanned and digitally processed using techniques akin to a time honored darkroom. Printing is done at one of Los Angeles’ top fine art digital labs using fine art photo rag paper and archival pigment inks. The final exhibition pieces are 30×40, limited edition gliclée prints. Signed 17×20 prints are available through this site.
“My love for the automobile is genetic. My grandfather had one of the first Kaiser-Frazer dealerships in Philadelphia and spent his life selling many different lines of cars. Throughout the years, one of my favorite activities was to go to his lot and explore all of the different models. As My love for design and photography matured, I was drawn to the automobile’s lines, form, and high performance beauty molded out of raw steel. These unique perspectives of classic automotive design evoke an emotional pull of both nostalgic and modern art.”
Daniel was born and raised in Philadelphia and spent his formative years in New York City. For 25 years Daniel has enjoyed a successful career in the music business as a composer, musician, and producer. However, as a composer he has never strayed far from his visual arts roots, as his musical focus has been underscore for film and television.
Daniel readily combines a musician’s sense of timing, pace, depth, emotion, lyrical quality and intimacy of subject matter with the photographer’s sense for expansive awareness of his surroundings to include texture, simplicity, and energy. He makes pictures with the same intensity that he makes music.
