Dan Cleary’s photographic collages are about the varying visual representations of the past and the present. For his Wright Brothers: Then and Now series, Dan has traveled to locations where the Wright Brothers did their research and flight demonstrations to create modern images to go along with the historic photographs. This included many locations in Dayton, Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, Washington, DC, Detroit, Michigan, Le Mans and Pau, France. He has created images that are nostalgic in their desaturated overtones but enlivened by the presence of modern-day activities. Dan also includes a written narrative with each image to tie the past and present together.
