It’s a kinda magic.
Daniel Dueckminor’s photography is enchanting and other-worldly. Comforting, calming and celestial in just the right measures i-D online first stumbled upon D.D’s work in a recent issue of Dust & Desert, struck by his ability and astounded by his age. Just twenty-years-old and busily having his brain filled studying in Munich, in his own words Daniel focusses his lens on “nature and urban skateboarding.” His photography is distinct, distinguised and utterly bewitching; on a potter through his portfolio you’ll quickly see he manages to make Munich seem like just about the most magical place on earth. These snappy snaps really do the talking so have a gander, see for yourself and then see what Daniel has to say for himself.
