About Dan Lythcott-Haims

I have spent my life noticing things about the built world. I notice patterns both designed and emergent; I notice color and form and scale. Each of my series works to elevate bits of the human-made world that go unseen, ignored, or discarded by capturing a particular element of my noticing: e.g. decay or pattern or color.

I compose my photographs within the camera, moving my body ever closer until the contexts of location, environment, and even subject are lost, and I’ve whittled the thing to its unique core. In my sculpture, I take familiar human-made objects and assemble them into unexpected presentations – by combining multiples together or by cherishing a particular piece with its own frame. In both mediums I strive to recreate the quality that caught my interest – that thing that other people don’t see.
