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.
