2012 Hasselblad Masters Finalist, D.A.Wagner is a Brooklyn boy who took up photography after finding an old twin lens reflex roll film camera in the family attic. He promptly started taking pictures of rocks, wood, girls and subway stations, however not necessarily in that order. After a stint at the Fashion Institute of Technology he assisted a few notable photographers and, being an impatient sort, launched his career shooting still life and later, venturing into special effects in the waning days of film (before digital). He works out of a 10,000 square foot studio just outside the Lincoln Tunnel.
It may have been Bauhaus architect Mies van der Rohe who said, “Less is more.” But it took D.A.Wagner to do more with even less.
