Unique perspectives: Photographer captures a different side of daily life in new exhibit
“Corrugated Shadow” by Dan Shaffer celebrates his love for New Mexico architecture and could be an ode to works by the late Harold Joe Waldrum.
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The VSA North Fourth Art Center Gallery is hosting a graphically stunning photography exhibition titled “Coincidence of Light and Line” by Dan Shaffer through Sept. 17.
“Walkway Shadows” by Dan Shaffer contains zigzag lines reminiscent of zebras or African textile patterns.
Shaffer developed his camera chops traveling on safari with his dad while growing up in Africa.
“Since I was about 8 years old, I always had a camera in my hand,” Shaffer said.
After pursuing a political science degree back in the States, Shaffer made a career in graphic design and advertising sales, all the while shooting pictures during every free moment.
