After six decades, David has mostly harmonized the two halves of his mind. One half majored in Mathematics, because it was “easy and fun” and has worked jobs like information analyst. The other half grew up with a piano, makes art, and writes stories.
He creates and prays in the western Maryland panhandle.
I turn the ordinary, unlikely, or even ugly into the amusing, beautiful, or meaningful. It is satisfying work.
I work with what I find by being mindful and sensitive to my surroundings and discover most photos near where I live and work in the mountains of western Maryland. There seems to be an endless supply of material for those with eyes to see, and I enjoy sharing these visions.
I consider myself an artist first and a photographer second. I do not seek to capture the unusual or the exotic, but seek to express some truth, to make some commentary, or sometimes simply to remind someone how to enjoy a playful, child-like imagination or how to see beauty in unlikely places.

is not about capturing what the camera sees.
It is about capturing what the artist sees.
Art for Your Place
I’m one of those people who sees faces everywhere–for instance, in the wood grain of lacquered doors or in the floral patterns of bedspreads and table cloths. So, my art usually provides opportunities to “see things” or–at the least–to imagine more than what appears. It’s sort of like instant oatmeal or ramen noodles, but with instructions that say, “Just add imagination.”
