Traveling Photographer Makes Stop in Charlottesville

A Staunton man who has been traveling the world as a photographer had a project close to home Thursday.
Dan Gayle used the graffiti wall underneath the Belmont Bridge in Charlottesville to shoot his newest composite photo. In a composite shoot, Gayle uses many different versions of himself, sometimes in memorable outfits.
He is about to leave the U.S. for another worldwide trek and hopes to take pictures in more than 100 countries.
"What I do is for nonprofit. I photograph landscapes and cultures primarily, and everyone I photograph throughout the world is not something I'm really looking to gain monetary value from, but rather just gaining an experience," said Gayle.
Gayle donates his photo sales to the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), a charity that helps children living in poverty around the world.
