Dan Managan photography as fine art
website launch

We're happy to announce a new member of the tribe Dan Mangan. It was a pleasure to assist him in getting his site launched.

Dan's work blurs the space between photography and painting, blending form, light, and shadow into an image which has unique visual appeal. Dan has presented a large body of work in his portfolio. Spend some time there browsing each of his galleries. We are extremely interested in his work that appears to be a painting.
