Woodpecker, camera-less photograph by Dan McManus


DISCOVERED will include new photographic works from local favorite Alexander Nesbitt and for the first time at Blink Gallery, we will feature Rhode Island native Dan McManus with his large framed digital images of 1960’s plastic bird models.

Dan’s images are the result of making photographs without a camera in a process he simply calls camera-less photography. Stating “I am trying not to think, but instead respond to a subject,” Dan arranges small novelties on a scanner bed with  tape, balance, experimentation and a thoughtful editing process. The scans become the basis for his artwork. Printed at a large scale the subjects are completely transformed, hovering in the dark, part kitsch, part macabre–with a nod to the primordial birder in all of us.

Dan currently works out of his studio in North Kingstown, RI and teaches at the Newport Art Museum. He is a graduate of MASS ART and his work has garnered awards from the Rhode Island State Council of the Arts, Newport Art Museum and South County Art Association.



The exhibition will be on view until mid-July, 2018. Check our contact page for currently gallery hours.
