Franklin Manor is proud to support and display the work of local artists.
Currently we have on display the photography of local artist and woodworker, Daniel Hausner. Dan is a photographer and woodworker from Saranac Lake New York. He enjoys spending time in the mountains and lakes around his home hiking, canoeing, and cross country skiing.
Dan’s photography depicts mostly rural and natural scenes from Upstate New York, but does include a wide range of styles and subject matter. Rather than looking for certain types of images Dan tries to tell the story of the world around him through his images. His photos capture the unique feeling of a particular place at the moment when the image was taken.
The frames for Dan’s photographs are all designed and built by the artist. Each photograph is carefully paired with just the right combination of matte and frame so that all three work together as one piece of art. His frames feature a mix of locally produced woods and reclaimed material.
In addition to photography Dan is also a woodworker, specializing in small functional pieces.
