Sophomore soccer player Daniel Malikyar

You’ve probably seen that photo in the art gallery of the beat up shopping cart alone in a desolate alleyway and, like a lot of people thought, “This is art?”

Meet the guy who not only
that’s art, he
it with photos worth thousands of words and stories. He’s
Chapman soccer
Daniel Malikyar ’17
and since he received his first digital ‘point-and-shoot’ camera as a 12-year old, he’s quickly evolved into an outstanding and daring photographer who has seemingly found his voice in buildings, both towering and tattered.

As a hobby it started simply enough with his skateboard buddies, shooting cool stunt videos, one that even aired on
MTV’s Ridiculousness
several years ago. But he soon graduated to DSLR cameras and sharpened his storytelling through still photography.

“I really started to get into the art of photography,” says Malikyar, who is a business administration major with an emphasis in marketing. “I love that with photography there are no limits. And I love exploring and taking risks.”

From sneaking into abandoned theaters, hospitals and asylums to climbing fire escapes of highrise skyscrapers, Malikyar literally climbs great heights for the perfect photo and says the risk taking is paramount to his creativity because he never knows what he’s going to encounter.

“Opening the door to find an unbelievable helicopter-pad view of the city skyline is an indescribable feeling.”

As a starter on Chapman’s
Tournament-bound soccer team, the student-athlete’s passions often intersect as well. Malikyar photographed his favorite football team
Real Madrid
Inter Milan
in San Francisco last summer and regularly frequents
LA Galaxy
matches. And he hopes his marketing emphasis and advertising minor (and clearly artistic vision) can help him land a job in sports one day.

But until then, there’s lots more to capture through his lens. He recently launched his own website to share his work, both still and videos:
and he’s developed a growing following on Instagram:

“One day I hope to be able to travel the world and document the entire experience.”
