Daniel's recent photographic practice has focused on work with archives and projects exploring the use of art, architecture and photography in commemoration. A project for the Wellcome Trust explored instances of human brain harvesting, collecting and burying. This work was exhibited in the exhibition 'Brains: The Mind as Matter' at the Wellcome Collection, and published in a book of the same name.

Daniel is currently completing a four-year research-led photographic project about the permanent commemoration of the 1.7 million Commonwealth War Dead, through an exploration of the design of the Commonwealth War Graves and Memorials.

Daniel's work has also explored the collaborative possibilities of digital photography in network cultures. Daniel's project '1day6cities' brought together over 60 international collaborators to create a unique 24 hour snapshot of one day, 11 November 2011 in six cities around the world.
