Berta A. Daniels is a photographer and multi-media 3D Artist whose work deals with dismantling mainstream society’s objectification of the human body, and cookie-cutter ideas about beauty, sexuality, and body image. A native of Boston, Massachusetts, she attended The Art Institute of Boston where she studied ceramic sculpture with Mary Kaye, and photography with Bruce Kinch, Jane Tuckerman, and Bonell Robinson. It was there that she began to explore the figure in the landscape, encouraging her subjects to open themselves to personal transformation through acute connection with the land. As a member of the LGBTQ community, she understands the importance of inclusion and seeing positive representations of diverse subjects. Her work seeks to empower both the subject and the viewer through its representation of all kinds of bodies. In September 2017, she self-published her first monograph of photography, titled “Crossroads” with help and encouragement from Joyce Tenneson.
