About the Artist:
Daniel Ravel was born in Belgium. He moved to the U.S. with his family at age 7 and attended grammar and high school in Chicago. He later graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago with a B.S. degree in Biology.
Daniel fell in love with photography in 1979. Back then he enjoyed shooting Kodachrome 64 in his Nikon FM and F3 cameras. He now shoots with a Nikon D7200.
Photography is Ravel's creative release. His images center around the purity of line, shape, pattern, and contrast - suggesting an abstract quality.
Daniel's artistic style has been strongly influenced by László Moholy-Nagy, Edward Weston, Paul Strand, André Kertész, and Ando Fuchs.
He lives in Fayetteville, North Carolina .
Quote: "In photography, it's not just what we see; it is HOW we see that's important."
