1976 · United States
Unpacking the ideals of the American dream in his imagery, photographer Daniel Coburn explores this theme through his reconceptualization of the family photo album.
Conjuring gripping images of everyday figures in striking settings, Coburn’s frames create a compelling look into the average nature of American life while subverting the expectations of what these images relay. Artful pairings and juxtapositions between nature and humanity recall the nature of our relationship to the larger world and to each other.
Born in San Bernardino, California, in 1976, Coburn earned his BFA at Washburn University in 2009 and his MFA from the University of New Mexico in 2013. He taught as the Assistant Professor of Photography at the University of Kansas from 2013 to 2018 and subsequently moved to a teaching position at the University of Sydney. His works are featured in collections across the country, including the University of New Mexico Art Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago.
