Bio:

‘Like spectres of memory, the photographs act to neutralise time. Mimicking a slip, or a fall - “watch your step”. They affect lived reality: meticulous human interventions contrasted by natural phenomena. A reference to the Uncanny. The defiled grave, the floating body, the phantom limb.’

Daniel John Bracken is a London based visual artist working primarily with photography. His research draws from alien abduction stories and modernist literary narratives, coalescing his practice around investigations into memory regression and the ontology of the photograph.
