Who is Dan Estabrook? Wiki Bio
Dan Estabrook was born in 1969 in Boston, Massachusetts USA, and so holds American nationality. He is an artist, photographer, and a production designer, but better known because he’s married to actress Megan Boone.
Early life and education
Dan was born into a family of blue-collar workers and spent his childhood in Boston. He is of British ancestry as his paternal grandfather moved to Boston from England. Dan was an exceptional student while attending elementary school, and showed an interest in the arts from a very early age. He discovered photography in his teens through the underground magazines of the punk-rock and skateboarding cultures of the ‘80s.
He attended School of the Museum of Fine Arts, and later became a Harvard University graduate. During his time at Harvard, Dan studied alternative photographic processes with Christopher James, graduating magna cum laude with a Bachelor’s degree in 1990. He continued his education at the University of Illinois, from which he obtained his Master of Fine Arts degree in 1993.
Career as an artist and other ventures
During his artistic career, Dan has explored intimate topics such as love, sex, and death. He has used 19th century photography techniques to make his work more raw and realistic.
He is also interested in painting, drawing, sculptures and production design. Dan received an Artist’s Fellowship Award from the National Endowment of Arts in 1994.
One of his earliest exhibitions – “Minimal” – was held at Gallery X in Los Angeles, California in 1993. A year later, he hosted his solo exhibition at I-Space Gallery in Chicago, Illinois, and in 1995 he was a part of two exhibitions: “A New Direction” at Warren Street Gallery in Hudson, New York, and “Dysfunctional” at Blue Note Gallery in London, England. He travelled to San Francisco, California to host an exhibition at Catharine Clark Gallery in 1996, and that year also hosted the solo exhibition “Interior Views” at Houston Center for Photography in Houston, Texas.
His work is currently displayed in Catherine Edelman Gallery in Chicago. In 1997, Dan Estabrook served as a production designer for Jesse Peretz’s directing venture, “First Love, Last Rites”. He was also associated with the art department of the 2018 musical drama “Juliet, Naked”.
He continued working and teaching in Boston, Illinois and Florida, and eventually in Brooklyn, New York City – a documentary about Dan and his work was produced in 2009 for Anthropy Arts’ Photographers Series. Dan is associated with “Planetkind Project” which focuses on raising awareness of environmental issues, and promoting a sustainable lifestyle.
Love life and wife
Dan has been dating actress Megan Boone since November 2015, and they have a daughter named Caroline Boone Estabrook who was born in 2016. After being engaged for over a year, the couple married in a small private ceremony right after the birth of their daughter. Megan has uploaded many pictures with her family onto her Instagram account, and they seem to be living a peaceful life away from the media’s attention, and there have been no rumors surrounding the two’s marriage, perhaps because Dan is also very supportive of his wife‘s acting career.
Hobbies and other interests
Dan is interested in music and cinema.
He has a vast collection of vinyl records which includes albums such as “Kind of Blue”, “In the Court of Crimson King” and “Pet Sounds”. His favorite director is Alejandro Jodorowsky, and he perhaps unsurprisingly he enjoys watching experimental movies including “Synecdoche, New York”, “Eraserhead” and “Gummo”.
He likes to travel, and has been all around the US while he has also visited many European countries such as Italy, Croatia and Norway among others. Dan was physically active while attending high school, as he played football and soccer and later started going to the gym after being advised by his friends as he wasn’t getting enough exercise.
He is a lover of animals, with horses and dogs being his favorite, and enjoys visiting zoos as well as volunteering at animal shelters.
Appearance and net worth
Dan is 50 years old. He has short brown hair and brown eyes, is 5ft 7ins (1.76m) tall, and weighs around 170lbs (78kgs). As of March 2020, his net worth is estimated at over $3 million, while Megan’s wealth is reputedly at about the same level.
