The action, emotions and visual textures of a David Black photograph push far beyond its frame. No surprise, considering David is also an accomplished director. His collaborations with top talent—Daft Punk, Giorgio Morodor, Kim Gordon, Cat Power, Ryan Adams, Kendrick Lamar and The Kills (to name a few)—are like episodic series that celebrate his subjects through light, location and symbolic metaphor. When asked about the contents of his camera bag, David replied “Hasselblad H2, Nikon FM2, Kodak/ Rollei film, lots of smoke and mirrors.” David infuses the technical with magical thinking to create unique imagery and multi-platform campaigns for clients such as Facebook, Oakley, Shinola, Coors, Ray Ban, Levi’s, Nike, Adidas, Stella McCartney, Spotify, Converse, Reebok, Microsoft, Budweiser,  Google, and Smirnoff, and land his name on the notable lists of top industry organizations, including Photo District News, Print Magazine, and the Art Director’s Club. His photos can also be found in the book Beyond the Beyond: Music from the Films of David Lynch, and his first monograph Cerro Gordo (Hat & Beard 2016), a collection of vivid, plaintive visions of Los Angeles.
