Danny Upshaw
(United States)
Unheard Sigh (2023)

Graphic design and videography may be Danny Upshaw’s day job, but he’s a photographer first. Born and based in Phoenix and a member of the Navajo Tribe, Upshaw can often be found biking around Downtown either chasing storms, designing photoshoots with friends, or immortalizing the soaring Westward Ho—always with the goal of documenting the city he loves. His photographs range from the contemplative to the awe-inspiring, the subdued to the positively electric. Upshaw, whose work was recently featured on the latest cover of PHOENIX Magazine, originally studied architecture, an interest that continues to drive his work today.
