WPCA Member Profile: Eddee Daniel

Eddee Daniel – two d’s, double e’s, a common first name for a last name; it seems like there’s a lot of duality in his life, past and present. He’s a photographer and writer. He has two blogs — Urban Wilderness, where he writes and shares photographs about the Menomonee Valley and the Menomonee River watershed, and Arts Without Borders, a blog he started to share his experiences from art and cultural excursions. But actually, when you go through his extensive work in photography, publication, writing, education, activism and anything else, you might run out of fingers trying to keep track of the vast roles and identities of Eddee Daniel. You might run out of toes, too.

ed-1
Eddee was an art educator for over three decades, and taught at Marquette High School and various local colleges. He received a master’s degree in art education from UWM. As an art educator, he was capable and knowledgeable in various art mediums and disciplines, and not until later in his life that he took up photography as his art expression. He has published many books, including his first, Urban Wilderness: Exploring a Metropolitan Watershed, a collection of his photographs and essays about the scenery, transformation and the urban/natural dichotomy and harmony along the Menomonee River watershed. 

Current Project

Eddee was named the Artist in Residence of the Menomonee Valley Partners (MV AiR) earlier this year.
