Piece description from the artist
A fixture of the world famous Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco, Alioto's has been serving world-class seafood since 1925. Also part of the original Barbary Coast, the Fishermen's Grotto sits adjacent, as the two preside over the sailboat marina on Jefferson Street. A sure stop of any first timer to San Francisco, and still mystical for a thousand timer, like me.
Danny Anderson has no formal training in photography, but he makes up for what he lacks in training with a unique perception of the world around him.
From the beginning, Danny's approach was simple; when he photographs a location, Danny attempts to capture not just what it looks like, but what it feels like to be there. In doing so, contrasts, composition, dynamics and drama have become an integral part of his process and consideration while making artwork. Danny is always searching for everyday beauty so he can allow the day-to-day imagery to distract and inspire him. Danny refers to this process as "natural distraction."
Danny currently lives and works in Brentwood, California.
