David was born in North London on the 4th August 1931, he qualified at The Architectural Association in 1956 and also took a degree in Tropical Architecture. He began his own practice in 1960, working all over London from Notting Hill, Hammersmith and Chiswick to Tower Hamlets, Hackney and beyond. Although David’s passion was to become an architect, his camera was usually round his neck while on holiday. This retrospective focuses on his images taken in the 1940's and 1950's.
Davids' approach to photography has always been to “see people in their own settings, dealing with their own problems in their own way; ideally not even being aware of me being there”. He is a great admirer of Henri Cartier Bresson, Brassai, Annie Leibovitz (in her reportage stage), Dorothea Lange, Bill Brandt and, especially, Robert Doisneau.
David's latest exhibition and book includes a selection of his enchanting photographs where David captured moments from journeys to France, Italy and England in the 1940’s and 1950’s. David's photographs can be viewed in his book, available to purchase from the Lighthouse bookshop priced £12.99.
David's photographs are framed by Gallery 65, Westbourne.
