Profile Danielle was born into pictures. A native New Yorker, her earliest vision of the world was lit by passing street lamps and framed outside the rear windows of yellow cabs. She grew up in Woody Allen's Manhattan: Black & White and full of smoke and Jazz. A New York when Coney Island was still a carnival and you probably didn't go to the Lower East Side. A New York that inspired the Master's that would later inspire her. It was Nan Goldin's New York. Cindy Sherman's New York. Mary Ellen Mark and Larry Fink's New York. The daughter of an ambitious commercial director/producer team, her parents further galvanized the idea that life ought to be studied through a lens by taking Danielle and her sister on film sets around the world. It would open their young eyes to the shadows and highlights of other beautiful cities and cultures. By the time Danielle was in High School, a passport to Paris and an old AE-1 slung around her neck was the last piece of the puzzle that would become her life's passion and ultimate career in photography. Later, being accepted into the International Center For Photography offered her structure, technique, and the opportunity to be mentored by two of her heroes: Nan Goldin and Larry Fink. After graduation Danielle pursued everything photography. From shooting to producing, photo editing, and ultimately becoming the Photo Editor / Director Of Photography for such beautifully photographed and well read periodicals as Best Life, Oprah's "O" and Maxim, to name a few. But it was looking at life through a lens that always lured Danielle back to shooting. Over the years she has developed a celebrated clientele for her untraditional approach, her effortless compositions and verite style. She has become known for her ability to capture 'spontaneity in action'. Whether shooting reportage, documentary or a personal subject, Danielle's work finds the human spirit in each and every frame. She's still a New Yorker, of course. Drawing inspiration from the same faces, the same stoops and street corners that once informed her impressionable eye.
