Hold on to your Union Jack caps, Daniel Stier has managed to capture the blank feeling of a service station, mixed with a touch of a Swindon roundabout, with a pinch of a British suburban summer in his magnificent, Martin Parr-esque photography. Utilising the garish signs of a ubiquitous DFS sale contrasted with the faux brick pastel of a British suburban house, Daniel’s portoflio is a reminder of everything you loathe and love about the British Isles.
The clever part is that Daniel has obviously tried to put his finger on how we live, but has resisted any kind of scathing element, which is a great relief. As well as putting British suburbia on a pedestal with these beautiful images, he’s also a dab hand at some rather magnificent still-lifes. This range of photography skill has attracted the world’s biggest magazines, a list of which you can see here.
