Dan Herrera is a photographer based in Sacramento, California. In addition to his commercial work, Dan has a wide vocabulary of photographic processes that date back to the mid-1800’s. His work often merges these antique 19th century printing techniques with contemporary digital post-production – exploring how the aesthetics of these processes can be used as a narrative element.
Dan’s exhibition record includes shows in New York, Los Angeles, and numerous Bay Area venues including the De Young Museum in San Francisco, and the Marin Museum of Contemporary Art. His work has been recently published in The Book of Alternative Photographic Processes (3rd Edition), The Hand Magazine, Submerge Magazine, F-Stop Magazine, Diffusion Magazine, and Juxtapoz Magazine. Herrera has also been a featured lecturer on his unique approach to image making at the 2014 F295 Symposium, and Cal Poly State University San Luis Obispo.
Dan currently teaches photography as an adjunct professor at San Jose State University, American River College, Sierra College, and The Art Institute of California, Sacramento.
