Daniel Featherstone

Daniel Featherstone was born in Poole, England in 1970, where he began his artistic career as a graffiti artist.

He emigrated to New York in the early 90s to pursue graphic design, and has since served as the Art Director at Polo Ralph Lauren and the Director of Men’s and Women’s Graphics at Nautica. Featherstone’s early photography practice was fostered by the legendary Bill Cunningham, capturing icons of midtown Manhattan. The characters that Daniel interacts with range from the plastic surgery aristocracy to naïve tourists to the underprivileged homeless.

He has received recognition from Pulitzer Prize-winning art critic, Jerry Saltz and former Editor-in-Chief of LIFE Magazine, Bill Shapiro, He is also the recipient of the 2020 Golden Cube Award.
