Arab Architecture Exhibition – El Bahia Palace, Marrakech Morocco 

Irish  born  to  German  parents,  Daniel  Holfeld  grew  up  in  Ireland  and  graduated  with  a  BA  [Hons]  degree  in photography from Dublin’s Institute of Technology. After graduation Daniel exhibited his work in the New York Photo Festival, where he was nominated within the best emerging  photographer  category.  Leading  on  from  his  success  in  New  York,  Daniel  was  invited  to  participate  in exhibitions in London’s St. Pancras Cathedral and exhibitions in Paris and Croatia. Throughout this period, Daniel enjoyed his work as a fine artist and became collectible with successful sales hosted by James Adam & Sons on St Stephens Green, Ireland’s leading fine art auctioneer.

Now  based  in  Ireland  he  has  worked  on  fashion  and  beauty  commissions  in  locations  such  as  Oman,  Dubai, Morocco,  Venice,  Amsterdam  and  Paris.  With  his  extensive  travel  experience,  Daniel  has  re-emerged  as  a photographic artist, turning his lens towards Arab architecture. While shooting an international tanning campaign in Morocco eight years ago, Daniel was deeply moved and inspired by Arab culture, therefore he created a powerful and collected series of Arab architectural photographs of artistic content and style.

Moving on from this Daniel works between his commercial assignments and his work as an artist with a profound admiration  of  the  heritage,  culture  and  craftsmanship  found  in  the  Arab  architecture  he  has  encountered  on  his travels. In his eyes, his work pays homage to a culture rich in design, craftsmanship and beauty as he seeks only to display and share something of the beauty and prestige of the Arab world.
