Daniel Fast is a Canadian documentary photographer based in Toronto. He spent hours looking at the photos inside his grandparents’ vast collection of National Geographic magazines as a child. This may have helped him develop an interest in the human experience, learning how others live and leave their mark.
Daniel studied photography independently, attracted to the ethos of street photography over the studio, and became aware of photographers like Henri Cartier-Bresson, Diane Arbus , and Stephen Shore.
Daniel explores themes of loneliness and isolation in his images, allowing personal expression to come into the frame.
