Daniel Lee Postaer is an American artist/photographer. Born in Chicago and raised in Southern California by a Chinese mother and American father, Daniel graduated with an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute in 2015 where he received the Fellowship in Photography. Postaer left an international marketing and entertainment career for the life-changing pursuit and craft of picture-making. His work explores the ways in which humanity reconciles and resists modernity – across global booms, busts and the transitional spaces in between – as he addresses questions of capital, race/ethnicity, and historical belonging. Postaer’s prints are wide-scale and of the hyper-moment; surreal scenes of everyday urban theatre. Ongoing long-form projects include Motherland (Urban China), Boomtown (San Francisco), Wilshire Boulevard and The River (Los Angeles). Currently his Boomtown series is being exhibited as part of This Land at Pier 24 Photography Museum in San Francisco.
