April 2013 Artist: Dana Koenitzer

Inspired by the architecture of NYC and coming from a family of artists, Dana Koenitzer brings her unique photos to our gallery space.

Preceded by generations of artists and frequenting galleries as a child, art was always the backdrop for Dana’s upbringing. Using her father’s spare cameras when she could, she learned the reins of photography in both natural and man-made environments – gravitating towards buildings and fascinated by macro abstractions. Through the photography club in high school, she had her first exhibit at the age of sixteen in a Collingswood, NJ coffee shop.

Ayn Rand’s novel “The Fountainhead” inspired her to move beyond the confines of photography into built space. She received a scholarship to major in Architecture at the New Jersey Institute of Technology. There she excelled, receiving honors and founding the AIA Student group. She served as its first President and was an active member for several years.

In college she combined her extensive photography experience with architecture academia to photograph buildings in sometimes unrecognizable compositions. A number of Newark galleries featured her architecture designs. She now lives in Hoboken, working as a full-time architecture. She continues to study inventive photography in New York City and abroad in her spare time.
