    Viewpoint Gallery is pleased to present the photographs of Dan Herrera in an exhibition called Vaudeville, one of two exhibits in Viewpoint’s main gallery for August. In Vaudeville, Dan Herrera’s stated purpose is to create “beautiful images that engage us in mysterious narratives, at once futuristic and nostalgic.” The series combines Herrera’s childhood love of building dioramas with his fascination with contemporary science fiction. Herrera initiates each image by constructing a miniature set of found objects and he uses 19th-century printing techniques in the final development steps, adding gestural effects that enrich his explorations of distinctions between photographic realism and painterly illusion.

    Dan Herrera is a professional photographic artist and graphic artist with studio locations in Sacramento and New York City. He wields an extensive vocabulary of photographic process that merges 19th-century photography with contemporary digital imaging. His work has won awards in the annual Tech Art show held in Massachusetts, and is most recently featured on the cover of the book No Alternatives: Contemporary Handcrafted Photographs. He is an actively-showing young artist whose exhibition record includes shows in New York, Los Angeles, and numerous Bay Area venues including the De Young Museum in San Francisco. Hererra currently teaches art and design at American River College and The Art Institute of California, Sacramento, specializing in alternative process photography, and advanced image manipulation.
