Dario Preger

"So often we walk through life as casual observers—eyes wide open, but not truly seeing. I am enthralled by the wonders of nature: color, symmetry, design, and transformation. The wings of a butterfly. The things you can only see when you remember to look. "

Dario Preger's reverence for nature can be likened to the Transcendentalists and Romantics of the 19th century. Equal parts methodical and whimsical, Preger is finely attuned to the environment around him, and he continues to be inspired by the way that our reality can change through the act of exploration.

Preger's specimens are ethically procured from farmed sources, not taken from the wild. His camera is, in fact, a high-resolution scanner. This unconventional method allows him to capture the minutest of details, from jewellike scales to wings reminiscent of Art Nouveau architecture. His large-scale photographs are printed with fine art archival pigment inks on heavyweight museum-grade paper.

Dario Preger studied at the Art Institute of Boston and began his career as a commercial photographer in the age of analog. The intense precision and technical skills learned from years of work in this field have been valuable as he transitioned over time to fine art photography in the digital era.
