Daniel Teafoe was born in St. Charles in 1955. Since then he has lived in Wayne, London, New York, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. He now resides in Chicago.
Teafoe’s casual use of a camera in the early nineties yielded some very interesting results, which led him to a more artistic and professional approach to the medium. While living in the District of Columbia, he exhibited and sold works at the Washington Center for Photography. His portraits of the Statue of Freedom sold in the hundreds on Capitol Hill as a limited edition lithograph and note card.
With the development of new 3D imaging software, Mr. Teafoe is now able to manipulate and render his photos into multi-dimensional images. Prints are made on a specially designed lenticular material which allows the viewer an added sense of depth. No special glasses are required to view this exciting new format.
His choice of subject matter varies. He also enjoys turning black and white photos into color.
Mr. Teafoe has exhibited locally in the galleries at the Campbell House, Fermi Lab, and the Norris Cultural Arts Center.
