Daniel Garay Arango

I'm a colombian photographer, specialized in black and white, fine art architectural and street photography.

I'm in a permanent quest for the unknown, escaping the everyday routine. Using black and white and imagination as my main tools, I try to take the city to a whole new level and meaning, revealing what always hides in plain sight.

My work is an exercise of patient observation. Exploiting architecture as my main language, I want my photographs to be timeless. There's no day or age, just light, textures and shapes.
