Daniel Ehrenworth has made a career for himself shooting the odd and unusual moments of every day life. The eerie, yet enchanting photos that shower his portfolio feel almost happenstance or accidental, which adds to their charming nature. Struggle is a common theme throughout his works and his various exhibitions have seductive titles such as 'Holocaust Dream' and 'Portrait of the Artist as a Drowned Man.' The photo series featured above, a personal favorite, is entitled 'Curse. Sleep. That's The Thing About Trouble.' This title is more than telling of this bewitching photo story.

The Canada native grew up in Ottawa and works in Toronto as a commercial photographer whose clients include Macleans, Toronto Life, Financial Post and many more.

Implications - Photography is an artform whose primary element is the story it tells. Viewers are intrigued by photos that offer an alternative perspective on everyday life than the one visible to the naked and ordinary eye. That being said, true insight is a key component of today's popular art.
