Daniel J. van Ackere

co-artistic director

Daniel J. van Ackere graduated from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts and Tufts University in 1988 and has been photographing for a wide range of commercial and art-based clients ever since. He has collaborated on several photographic and holographic portrait projects with the late Harriet Casdin-Silver, an internationally renowned and long-time Fort Point artist, and is staff photographer at America’s Test Kitchen. Daniel is currently collaborating on a permanent public art piece based on his “Starry Night” installation, originally conceived for Fort Point Arts Community’s Winter Solstice Public Art Series. His continuing fascination with the illusory worlds of theatre and holography has melded with his current work in public art and his photographic pursuits of landscape, theatre, and dance.
