Dan Stasiorowski: Photographic Artwork

Photography by Dan Stasiorowski is a husband and wife owned photography company located in the suburbs of Philadelphia. It’s named after Dan because, well, he has the art degree, and he takes the photographs. And makes sure the lighting is perfect. And posts them on our site and in your gallery. And orders your prints. He also designs your album, corrects your coloring and edits out any unsightly blemishes. Essentially, he is the reason your photographs will be beautiful. This all happens while Melisa makes location suggestions for your session, sends out e-mails about your session, and typically attends your session to make sure that you didn’t forget to take a hair tie off of your wrist. If you select us for your wedding photography you’ll also catch her lugging equipment, holding flashes and reminding you to smile and relax and telling you how fantastic you look, all while somehow keeping you on schedule. When we aren’t photographing your wedding, engagement, family session or event you can find us spending our spare time renovating our house (yes, we just spent a “staycation” repainting our living room for a second time after deciding that robin’s egg blue suited us better than taupe AND installing a pretty rad black and white checked ceramic floor in our kitchen), doing other household projects (dirty old potting bench turned into a fantastic outdoor bar, anyone?), and traveling whenever we get the chance. Our favorite places to visit? It’s a toss-up between our annual trip to San Diego in the winter and the one we take to the Outer Banks in the late summer… oh, we love the Florida Keys too… and Bar Harbor, Maine… and Chicago… it’s pretty hard to pick a favorite… Please give us a call or send us an e-mail, whether it is for a wedding, an event, a family session or any other idea you have for some gorgeous photographs. We’d love to hear from you. www.danstasphotography.com For fine art prints, please visit our etsy shop at: http://www.etsy.com/shop/DanStasPhotography

“Non-Apis Bee” will be available for viewing at the upcoming New Artists exhibit at the Chestnut Hill Gallery, starting 2/2/19.

Farmers, food growers and people can benefit from pollinators especially non-apis bees. Non-apis bees are particularly important to apple, almond, blueberry, cherry, orange and squash crops. A 2010 article estimated that non-apis bees are responsible for pollinating $10 billion worth of crops yearly (Ramanujan, 2012). Creating awareness and teaching techniques to create and preserve habitats that non-apis bees can live in will support a diversified strategy for achieving good crop pollination and yields (Amala, 2018). Amala (2018) explains that the easiest way to attract non-apis bees is to plant gardens or meadows that contain a diversity of native wildflowers. Providing areas for nesting such as dry mounds, drilled holes in wood, and undisturbed grassy areas are also very important for promoting non-apis bee habitation. It is also important that they have access to fresh clean chemical free water. Cultivation and survival of non-apis bees is very important to farming as they are the primary pollinator of crops in the United States (Adamson, 2011).

My current artwork has been inspired by challenges that face the climate and environment. In “Non-Apis Bee,” the bee is used to represent vital pollinators in danger of extinction among the threat of toxic chemicals and shrinking natural habitats. I hope to push the viewer to look deeper into this artwork and spark a curiosity to explore the importance of the issues facing vital pollinators, organic food production and ultimately human existence. More awareness can possibly change or slow the current downward cascade and cultivate a greater respect and value for the environment one lives in.

Look Closer.

“Purple Flower” and “Echinacea” will be available for viewing at the upcoming New Artists exhibit at the Chestnut Hill Gallery, starting 2/2/19.

The two pieces below titled “Purple Flower” and “Echinacea”, attempt to exhibit the beauty of some native flowers, the Cosmo and the Coneflower. These images demonstrate a synergy, using colors and textures and reflecting their importance to life in our environment. At the same time these images exhibit many layers which attempt to create mystery for the viewer by focusing deeper into the canvas. Conceivably the challenge in interpreting these images parallels the difficulty for most people to notice slow unseen changes impacting the environment one lives in. This artwork ultimately should compel viewers to notice the natural small life forces one lives among, and their vital importance to one’s survival.

"Three Summer Days"

In July of 1819 John Keats wrote a love letter to Fanny Brawne and included the words “I almost wish we were butterflies and liv’d but three summer days…” In naming this piece I was struck by the fleeting lifespan of the butterfly which, depending on the species varies from a week to a year, most falling somewhere in between.

Butterflies and caterpillars are an important food source to birds, bats and other animals and their presence is a major indicator of biodiversity in an environment. Because butterflies are fragile creatures with complex lifecycles, they are particularly sensitive to the unprecedented changes in our environment including habitat destruction, pesticide use and climate change. Perhaps most well-known, the monarch butterfly has experienced a population decline of nearly 90% in the past two decades.

Much like Keats who liv’d his “three summer days” dying at the young age of 25 but leaving behind multiple writings, the contribution of the butterfly’s short life is immense. This particular piece of photographic artwork attempts to convey the natural beauty of the environment, enhanced, but also with subtle shifting changes. The layers and textures create a visual story about alterations to our usual environment.

Three Summer Days will be available for viewing starting 2/2/2019 at the upcoming New Artists Showcase at the Chestnut Hill Gallery.

I currently focus my photography on landscapes and other day-to-day images. My approach is to take these surroundings, which may have become commonplace to us and to magnify them, bringing their beauty into focus.

Artist Statement

I am a photographic artist living in Wyndmoor Pennsylvania. I fell in love with the art of photography while attending photography courses at Kutztown University and have been creating artwork ever since then. I started out using silver gelatin black and white film and color negative and reversal film in 35mm format to 4×5 format. I had a great interest in controlling the films to create my previsualized concept and artwork by using different types of developers like Barry Thornton’s pyrochatecol’s, DiXactol and Exactol among other types of developing agents. I believe that traditional film photography is something very extraordinary. It renders prints of unmatched beauty and quality. That being said, I like many have also found modern digital photography to produce equally beautiful prints.

Currently I work primarily with digital photography to execute my photographic concepts. I try to use the digital medium to take advantage of its increased range of tones and ability to be manipulated to express my conceptual ideas. I have most recently begun to combine digital painting with my photography to truthfully conceptualize the visualized artwork.

My latest work attempts to express the concept of stacking many single textures and imagery found in nature to create something new and unseen. With my latest work I hope to challenge the viewers visual perception and subconscious mind by creating something the viewer would like to see clearly but cannot quite construct.

I am concerned with the environmental challenges that are facing the human race and our planet moving forward. I feel as though changes in our environment are still happening at a rate that many people still have trouble processing the true inevitable danger. My recent work attempts to draw a parallel between the artworks blurred nature and people’s unclear perception of our changing environment.
