About Danny Mendoza
For me everything began when I started to follow the light.
I am not quite sure how to describe it. I just noticed that the mood of the moment was different when you changed or modified the light… and to take it even further from that, the colors as well. All the colors around me changed. In brightness and tone. How I saw everything around me changed in an instant into feelings that I can’t possibly put in words.
Colors, shapes and shadows where the things to notice at first but the light… oh boy! THE LIGHT was the one thing that changed my perspective of everything.
Not only in photography, in my life as well, to follow the light has been one of my ultimate goals. As a family man I can honestly tell you that when you put things or situations under a different light everything can change, even your state of mind. You could be sad sometimes but I can assure you that there are images you possess that bring a smile to your face. Am I right?
My little one can go to sleep safe and sound after I have bathed with light underneath her bed just in case there are little monsters, you know.
When I am having a bad day the photographs of my baby girl, my light, help me push through and conquer in the end.
It is the beauty of light and color that have led me to where I am right now as a photographer. Light has enabled me to have and re-experience some of the greatest moments I have gone through in my life and better yet…to see them whenever I want has no price.
I would like everyone to have beautiful moments as well. Moments that make the person re-experience their feelings, their human touch, the reason why they push through day by day, the reason they change their state of mind for the better.
For me this is a process that I have called “Explore The Heart Within” where more than memories are re-lived. It is the elegance and the beauty of every moment that makes everything worthwhile.
It would be my greatest pleasure if you would accompany me, through life and photographic journey, to “Explore The Heart Within.”
After all, in life as in photography, everything is about the LIGHT.
