Daniel Diasgranados is a photographer and artist from Prince George’s County, MD. His work engages with the sublime, the quotidian, the surreal and documentary abstraction and is influenced heavily by his early experiences being raised within the D.C, Maryland and Virginia area.
Working with and within small groups of people, communities and collaboratively, he considers his work a “surrealist social practice” in which he investigates a broad range of themes and ideas ranging from science fiction, historically black collegiate universities, 21st century fantasy, western culture, family, kinship, sports, and being. His practice is both independent and communal and has collaborated with musicians, visual artists, elementary schools and record labels.
He released his first monograph in December of 2020 and is currently working on his continuing body of work, Voyager II. Previously, Daniel was a 2018 New York Times portfolio recipient and a 2019 workshop resident at Red Hook Labs. He is a 2019 BFA graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University.
Previous to working within photography, Daniel Diasgranados was a camp counselor.
