Daniell met Georgia O.Keeffe, in the 1940s at Alfred Stieglitz's "An American Place" Gallery in New York and visited her Ghost Ranch in Abiquiu, New Mexico. "Besides Stieglitz, of course" O.Keeffe said of her friend, "George Daniell is one of my favorite photographers."

George Daniell photographed celebrities who were writers, artists and actors throughout his travels throughout the United States and Europe, including a young Sophia Loren in a movie studio in Rome, Audrey hepburn on the set of "War and Peace," Tennesee Williams in Key West, Fla, 10 year old Robert De Niro, Bernice Abbott, Lena Horne, Edith Hamilton and many more. These photographs are, as Robert Newman described, "as sometimes starkly dramatic, and at other times, mistily reflective, and disarmingly nostalgic and melodic."
