Danielle Spires Photography

ABOUT

IMG_2017_10_22_0069_sml.jpg

Danielle Spires is a Los Angeles-based artist who specializes in photography and alternative printing practices. Spires draws inspiration from the concept of suffering as it relates to day-to-day life, as well as her deeply feminist roots. Integral to her own formation as an artist, each photograph embodies life with a severe chronic illness and the struggle with bodily autonomy as a patient and a woman. Spires’ fascination with how lifelong hospitalizations shape how we see ourselves can be seen in both the subject matter and writing behind her pieces.

Danielle Spires has been shooting since 1997, and currently holds an AA in Photography and a BA in Sociology. Spires’ photographs have been featured in numerous galleries and publications, and she was interviewed by the LA Times with a showcase of her ‘Awkward Couples’ series, which you can read here: LA Times reFramed Interview

Spires currently resides in LA with her partner, their black lab and two cats. She previously worked in the Sony Pictures Entertainment Photo Department before moving to AMDA Performing Arts Conservatory in Hollywood taking a position as a photo editor, photo producer and digital asset manager. Spires also works as a mentor with the Las Fotos Project to help teach young girls from East Los Angeles about photography.
