Daniel Fast is a Canadian documentary photographer whose fascination with the medium began around the time he was given a rangefinder film camera. Enrolled at a traditional art school at the time, the camera allowed him an escape from the institution, and an excuse to explore the environment and landscape of a former steel town, at once neglected and reviving — the city of Hamilton showed a reflection of his own difficulties with failure and direction at the time.
Daniel studied photography independently, gravitating to street, photojournalism, and documentary photography. Discovering photographers like Henri Cartier-Bresson, Diane Arbus, or Stephen Shore inspired him to treat photography as a daily practice.
