Photography found Errol Daniels in the 1960’s while he worked in the Civil Rights Movement in Chicago. He found himself drawn to social documentary photography because it provides him access to the daily lives, cultures, traditions, and events that shape the lives of his subjects. Errol studied with documentary photographers Amy Arbus, and John Goodman to further develop his craft and style of social documentation. The genre has enabled Errol to best reveal the complex nature of his subjects, who often are challenged by physical, social, mental, or political disadvantages. Through his photography, Errol exposes the dignity, humanity, complexity, and courage of the people he photographs.
