Join Shaker Historical Society for a virtual artist talk with “Waves” photographer Daniel Lozada on Thursday, April 6, from 6-7pm via Zoom. This program is free, but registration is required here.

Described by Daniel: ‘Waves’ is a feeling. Feelings of being moved by people I’ve used a camera to observe while I was out in a densely populated outdoor space – Edgewater State Park. Many themes that arose while photographing the shores of Lake Erie were Black and Brown Fatherhood, child-like joys, introspection, and seniors post retirement. During my time in this ongoing project, I think of the public space as one big body of water. As I’m moving through this water, people create waves that come through as a feeling of some kind of emotion I want to photograph. Hopefully, these images stir waves within you, the viewer.

Daniel Lozada is a self-taught Cleveland-born photographer whose background has turned him into a keen observer. With a love for both athletics and the arts, growing up and still today, he relates and understands those on opposite ends of the midwest spectrum. After walking away from a life in the Church in 2011, he’s learned the beauty in starting over in life. Dead-end jobs, heartbreak, depression, and a lot of hard work has helped and informed his photographic work. Since 2021, Daniel has been using photojournalism as a way to contribute to larger stories and has been published as a recurring contributor in many of the country’s leading news outlets. When he is not working for pay, you can find him still photographing and learning what he can to improve his craft to make sense of this life through his lens.

“Waves” is supported in part by the residents of Cuyahoga County through a public grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture.
