“My images are “time pieces,” stolen moments caught on the run that would otherwise be forever lost in time ... images that evoke a strong sense of place, time and mood. I am a photographic archaeologist, bringing forgotten emotions to light.”
Miriam Danar embarks on daily treasure hunts for that one visual gem - the serenity of the late afternoon sun, or the comfort of small things taken for granted. As a child, her family Pentax ignited a passion to preserve these accidental moments, overlooked in the haste of our everyday. The quiet drama of the urban landscape and the significant fleeting glimpse reflect the influence of painter Edward Hopper. With some nostalgia, she portrays the city as a neighborhood of the imagination, uncovering emotions in unlikely places – an abandoned lot, graffiti on a ragged wall, or that morning coffee stop.
A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, Miriam grew up in New Rochelle and was personally presented with a gold star by Norman Rockwell during a high school art competition. She worked more than two decades as an art director for Ogilvy & Mather Advertising in NY and as an illustrator in the new products field, coming full circle to her true passion, photography.
With three solo photo exhibitions at the United Nations and regular exhibits at the Soho Gallery for Digital Art in New York (named by CBS as one of "NYC's 6 best contemporary galleries" http://newyork.cbslocal.com/top-lists/best-contemporary-art-galleries-in-new-york/), Miriam is contributing images to a Hurricane Sandy Coney Island fundraiser, and participates regularly in The Great Photo Race. She is helping to research a book on tolerance and cultural diversity with a notable National Geographic photographer.
“Seen and Noted” in Print Magazine, Miriam interviewed on radio for the Centanni Broadcasting Network and recently appeared on TV’s “Minding Your Business”. Her work appears regularly online in The Scarsdale Patch. Miriam exhibited her work this fall at Framing at Depot Place in Scarsdale and at the Greenburgh Town Hall, and will be showing in Los Angeles this January.
Miriam is open to all inquiries for sales, commissions, and exhibitions - firstname.lastname@example.org or 917-239-6217.
