DON STEINER • PHOTOGRAPHER  
EXPLORATION & DISCOVERY

My art is based on photo manipulation where ordinary photos are

transformed into something alluring, unanticipated and artistic.

My photographs result from a lifelong process of exploration and

discovery and are inspired by the natural environment.

I attempt to soften the line between photography and painting

by employing photographic filters; altering color, pattern, texture

and visual rhythms of ordinary reality.

Don Steiner spent 40 years teaching elementary-school-aged

children in various locations, including Michigan, California,

Florida, Guatemala, and Turkey.

He has a Bachelors of Arts and Masters of Arts in Education, from

Michigan State University.

As a teacher, he fostered student creativity from potential to

performance through understanding the characteristics of

creativity, it was not just about elaborate products;

but also a wayof divergent thinking.

After retiring from his primary career he discovered an

enthusiasm and appreciation for photography and the application

of unconventional techniques to his photography.

He currently lives in Venice, Florida.
