Piece description from the artist
When I walked to the south shore of The Lake in Central Park, the streaking clouds and mossy water both had their own unique texture which complimented and contrasted one another. I framed the shot in such a way that the building with two towers is a prominent feature, but only co-stars in the show; sharing the stage with the greenery, the soft sky and the tangible water. A few boaters in the distance make the image more lifelike, but leaves the textures of the water to speak its own peace. To get the water this close to the lens, I did have to set the camera down very low in mud, almost to the surface of the lake itself.

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.
