George Daniell was an accomplished photographer and portraitist. He received degrees in Photography and Painting from Yale University. Growing up in Yonkers, New York, he began photographing local life. During the Great Depression, he photographed fishermen in areas off of the Hudson River and on Grand Manan Island. He would continue to be interested in the motifs of rivers and water.

After college he began doing freelance work for Life, Time, and Esquire magazines. In the 1950s he traveled to Italy and worked on the sets of Cinecetti Studios. He saw both poles of life in Italy at that period; sometimes he was busy photographing glamorous movie stars like Audrey Hepburn and Sophia Loren, while at others he was exploring the post-war damage Italy had experienced.

Daniell’s work has been shown in numerous exhibitions over the past seven decades. His work is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Art Institute of Chicago, The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and the National Gallery in Washington, D.C. Georgia O’Keeffe, John Marin, and more recently Bruce Weber, have all made public their admiration for Daniell’s work.
