Visual artist.

B. 1998, Innsbruck, Austria. 

After delving into self portraiture at age thirteen, David discovered his liking for emotional imagery (and dramatic skies). Entirely self taught, he focusses on wonder and vulnerability, with a penchant for the slightly surreal.

David was named EyeEm Photographer of the Year and chosen as one of Flickr’s 20under20 in 2014, in 2015 he was part of Adobe Photoshop’s 25 Under 25.
