Daniel Terna (b. Brooklyn, NY) uses video and photography as a means to describe relationships, both personal and related to the act of picture making. He questions when and why we choose to make photographs, and what it means to take pictures today versus what it meant in the past. He has produced several photographic series and short films, deeply exploring various sites and drawing conclusions about relationships and memory.
Terna has participated in select group exhibitions at the International Center of Photography (NYC); Baxter St. Camera Club of NY (NYC); New Wight Biennial (UCLA, Los Angeles); Morris Museum of Art (Augusta, GA); BRIC Arts Media Biennial (Brooklyn, NY); Eyebeam (NYC); Museum of the City of New York (NYC); The Wild Project (NYC); the Carpenter Center for Visual Arts (Cambridge, MA); Armory Center for the Arts (Pasadena, CA); Contemporary Arts Center (New Orleans, LA); and Gallery Tayuta (Tokyo, JP). Terna was a resident in the nine-month Collaborative Fellowship Program at UnionDocs, Brooklyn, and was awarded the 2012 Cuts and Burns Residency at Outpost Artist Resources in Ridgewood, NY. Terna graduated with a BA in photography from Bard College and received his MFA from the International Center of Photography-Bard. He runs and co-curates 321 Gallery, Brooklyn.
