The speakers

PLATINUM with DAN BURKHOLDER [USA]

Dan Burkholder [USA] was one of the first photographic artists to embrace digital technology in the early 1990 s. True to his love of the traditional photograph, Dan uses digital technology to build images that still look and feel like real photographs, not like something from a graphic designer s portfolio. Melding his unique vision with mastery of both the wet and digital darkrooms, his platinum prints are now included in many museum and private collections.
