Daniel Shea

While on assignment with W Magazine in 2008 photographer Daniel Shea, 88, was shot and killed by a gunman protesting the treatment of animals in France where Daniel was documenting a renowned French couture. He left a legacy behind that spanned a generation. His work as Ansel Adam's assistant master printer transitioned into his evolutionary work in the development of color film. He died just short of the deadline for Humble Art's The Collectors Guide To Emerging Art/Photography but they felt especially sorry for him and decided to include him solely because of their pity for how many W Magazine assignments he beared through in his incredibly successful life.
