Danny Singer is a photographer living and working in Vancouver. Born in Edmonton, Alberta, Singer began his career as a cameraman and director for the CBC. In 1970, he moved to Montreal, where he made the transition to still photography. Working out of the tradition of documentary photography and using contemporary photographic techniques, Singer records small towns found in Canada’s western prairie provinces and the American Midwest and presents them as grand panoramas. Art critic Nancy Tousley writes, “Our eyes could never take in what Singer shows us in these serenely beautiful, exquisitely detailed, color ink-jet prints.” Often composed of up to one hundred forty sequential images digitally conjoined into seamless panoramas, Singer’s photographic works are eloquent and celebratory expressions of Western culture.
Singer has exhibited in solo shows across Canada and his work can be found in public collections across the country including the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa; the Vancouver Art Gallery; the Glenbow Museum, Calgary; the Mendel Art Gallery, Saskatoon; the Crown Collection of the Official Residences of Canada; the Canadian Department of Foreign Affairs; and the Denver Art Museum, as well as in numerous private collections in Canada, the United States, and abroad.
