After a doctor’s degree in Economics from Paris University, Daniel ANIZON spent three years travelling around the world. Though he did not have a camera then, this experience led to a love for travelling that would eventually become an important part of his work as a photographer.

 He discovered Photography in 1982 and received the Ilford B&W Award in 1984, and also the “International News” Award at the Rencontres Internationales de la Photographie” in Arles, France, in 1984. In 1987, he received the “Villa Medicis Hors les Murs” Prize from the French  Government, which allowed him to spend six winter months in Canada.

Numerous exhibitions in Arles, France, Paris (Canadian Cultural center), New-York (June Bateman Gallery), California, Canada, Belgium, Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

He was invited as an artist in residency at the Banff Center for Arts, Canada, in 1988, and also at the Villa Montalvo, California, in 1999.

His photographs are in various public and private collections in France (Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris, Bibliothèque Nationale de France, Paris, Artothèques Angers, Nantes, Caen, Grenoble) as well as abroad.

Travelling became his most important source of inspiration, taking him not only to  Canada but also to northern Europe, Russia, Vietnam, Sahara etc.

The intrigue and focus of his work come from his encounters, and the association he makes with his childhood memories. Stylistically his approach is of quick impressions, as if he was recording his peripheral vision.
