About the Artist

Danya is an honors student of Walter Johnson High School in Bethesda, Maryland. First introduced to photography in the seventh grade, Danya has spent the last six years honing her talents in photography. This exploration down the artistic pathways has revealed to herself, as a photographer, that she values true intention over spontaneous picture taking. Furthermore, she has found black and white film photography to be the purest form of communication for those intentions. Although each photograph is carefully planned, Danya has come to appreciate the perceptually subjective nature of photography and the varying meanings each viewer uncovers, and thus she plays with that concept accordingly.

Danya plans to keep the darkroom as her second habitat throughout her college career while double-majoring in photography and education. She considers effectively combining the two passions to teach film photography to middle and highschoolers of the future.
