About David

Working in New York in the 1970s and 80s, I developed a successful career in advertising, editorial, album cover, and portrait photography.

In 1986, leaving my commercial career behind to concentrate solely on my personal work, I moved to northern New Mexico where I began documenting the land and cultures of the southwest.

In March 2004 I departed New Mexico on a two year journey through America. I traveled over 70,000 miles, in a vintage 1960 Airstream Trailer, photographing the American people and diverse landscapes.

I have now returned to New Mexico and am immersed in the production of Images from theRoad and in the beginning stages of other new works.

I work within the realm of analogue processes. After working with various format cameras over the years, I chose to use a homemade 4x5 camera for the body of work, Images from the Road. Recently I have put aside my 4x5 camera as I am redefining my vision through revisiting the square format with a Hasselblad.

I continue to teach private landscape, portrait and platinum/palladium darkroom workshops.
