Daniel Valencia is a self-taught photographer who practices traditional black and white darkroom techniques. He was born in San Jose and raised in Seven Trees, San Jose by his Mexican-American mother. Seven Trees was its own unincorporated city and was not recognized as a part of San Jose until it was annexed in 2009. Growing up with no designated police force, city officials, or governing authority in the area, Daniel chose a skateboard and a camera as his way of observing, documenting, and processing the mayhem around him. In 2014, he began working as a darkroom technician, where he started exploring his current techniques of burning and physically manipulating photo negatives, as well as mural sized darkroom printing. He is the official photographer for the political printmaking collective the San Francisco Poster Syndicate.
