Daniel Bagan is a self-taught studio portrait photographer, based in St. Augustine, Florida, with a passion for capturing organic, compelling photos of unconventional subjects. Daniel began his career with film and a deep love of black and white portraits. As technology evolved, so did his approach to photography and he quickly realized his love for saturated colors and the pop-art style of the Digital Age. Daniel is the co-creator of We Are Straight Allies, a visual campaign designed to bring attention to lingering civil rights issues in the state of Florida.
He created the Age of Beauty Project, showcasing natural, beautiful portraits of women aged 50 - 100.
Daniel’s most famous work is his re-enactment of Dan Wynn’s iconic 1971 photograph published in
Esquire Magazine of Gloria Steinem and Dorothy Pitman Hughes. The photograph is in the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, the Museum of the City of New York’s exhibition Beyond Suffrage: A Century of New York Women in Politics and the Thomas G. Carpenter Library at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville, Florida.
